[Ada] Spurious possible contraint error warning with No_Exception_Propagation

This patch corrects an issue whereby spurious unhandled exception warnings on
integer literals within static if and case expressions would be emitted when
the restriction No_Exception_Propagation is enabled.

-- Source --

--  gnat.adc

pragma Restrictions (No_Exception_Propagation);
pragma SPARK_Mode (On);


package Pack is
   procedure Filter (Ret : out Integer);
end Pack;

--  pack.adb

package body Pack is

   subtype Nat is Integer range 0 .. 10;

   Default       : constant Nat := 1;
   User_Override : constant Integer := -1;

   procedure Filter (Ret : out Integer) is
      Val : constant Nat :=
              (if User_Override in Nat then
      Ret := Val;
   end Filter;
end Pack;

-- Compilation and output --

& gcc -c -gnatp -gnatwa pack.adb

Tested on x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, committed on trunk
