    c++: constexpr init of union sub-aggr w/ base [PR105491]

    Here ever since r10-7313-gb599bf9d6d1e18, reduced_constant_expression_p
    in C++11/14 is rejecting the marked sub-aggregate initializer (of type S)

      W w = {.D.2445={.s={.D.2387={.m=0}, .b=0}}};
    ultimately because said initializer has CONSTRUCTOR_NO_CLEARING set,
    hence the function must verify that all fields of S are initialized.
    And before C++17 it doesn't expect to see base class fields (since
    next_initializable_field skips over them), so the presence thereof
    causes r_c_e_p to return false.

    The reason r10-7313-gb599bf9d6d1e18 causes this is because in that
    commit we began using CONSTRUCTOR_NO_CLEARING to precisely track whether
    we're in middle of activating a union member.  This ends up affecting
    clear_no_implicit_zero, which recurses into sub-aggregate initializers
    only if the outer initializer has CONSTRUCTOR_NO_CLEARING set.  After
    that commit, the outer union initializer above no longer has the flag
    set at this point and so clear_no_implicit_zero no longer recurses into
    the marked inner initializer.

    But arguably r_c_e_p should be able to accept the marked initializer
    regardless of whether CONSTRUCTOR_NO_CLEARING is set.  The primary bug
    therefore seems to be that r_c_e_p relies on next_initializable_field
    which skips over base class fields in C++11/14.  To fix this, this patch
    introduces a new helper function next_subobject_field which is like
    next_initializable_field except that it never skips base class fields,
    and makes r_c_e_p use it.  This patch then renames next_initializable_field
    to next_aggregate_field (and makes it skip over vptr fields again).

    NB: This minimal backport of r13-211-g0c7bce0ac184c0 for 12.2 just adds
    next_subobject_field and makes reduced_constant_expression_p use it.
