That patch (r270155) also broke constexpr-63241.C:

constexpr-63241.C: In function ‘int main()’:
constexpr-63241.C:12:16: error: could not convert ‘<brace-enclosed initializer list>()’ from ‘<brace-enclosed initializer list>’ to ‘A’
   12 |      {{0}, {0}}};
      |                ^
      |                |
      |                <brace-enclosed initializer list>

We have an initializer for a multidimensional array of A, and somehow the
truncating of the elements breaks it.
