This bootstrap also passed.

Attached is a slightly updated patch that, besides fixing this
bug, also reverts the use of TYPE_HAS_TRIVIAL_DFLT() in favor
of trivial_type_p().  Using the macro turned out not to be
quite right -- it caused cpp0x/constexpr-63241.C to be rejected.
I missed that among all the other test failures.

I'm still not sure what happened with my yesterday's build that
it doesn't show the bootstrap failure.
