Removed specializations for array objects with compile time length.
Comments added (btw - whats up with the _GLIBCXX_RESOLVE_LIB_DEFECTS ?
I put it in because I see it with other DR notes, but I'm not sure
what its used for).

Also added the beginnings of a test suite. exlicit_instantiation.cc
and assign.cc (although, assign still tests the compile-time length
which i do believe is redundant now).
