This patch removes the base template implementation for std::char_traits.
If my reading of http://eel.is/c++draft/char.traits is correct, the
Standard mandates that the library provides specializations for several
types like char and wchar_t, but not any implementation in the base
template. Indeed, such an implementation is bound to be incorrect for
most types anyways, since things like eof() and int_type will definitely
have to be customized.
Since the base template implementation should not have worked for anyone,
this shouldn't be a breaking change (I expect that anyone defining a
custom character type today will already have to provide their own
specialization of char_traits). However, since we're aware of some users
of char_traits for unsigned char and signed char, we're keeping those two
specializations around for two releases to give people some time to migrate.
