C++ PATCH for c++/88136, -Wdeprecated-copy too noisy

-Wdeprecated-copy does find some real bugs, but it also complains
about a lot of reasonable code for which the implicitly declared copy
ctor/op= are fine oven though the class has a user-defined destructor:
this situation is only problematic if the destructor releases
resources held in one of the non-static data members.

So, this patch reins it in somewhat: first by moving from -Wall to
-Wextra, and then also only complaining if the other copy op is
user-declared.  The old behavior can be explicitly requested with

Tested x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, applying to trunk.

            PR c++/88136 - -Wdeprecated-copy false positives
    Deprecating the copy operations because the class has a user-provided
    destructor turns out to have too many false positives; this patch adjusts
    -Wdeprecated-copy to only deprecate if the other copy operation is
    user-provided.  To get the earlier behavior, people can explicitly request
    it with -Wdeprecated-copy-dtor.
            * c.opt (Wdeprecated-copy-dtor): New.
            (Wdeprecated-copy): Move to -Wextra.
            * class.c (classtype_has_depr_implicit_copy): Rename from
            * method.c (lazily_declare_fn): Adjust.
            * decl2.c (cp_warn_deprecated_use): Refer to -Wdeprecated-copy-dtor
            if deprecation is due to a destructor.
