[libc++] Overhaul initialization tests in std::array

We had a few tests for the different ways to initialize a std::array
here and there, but they were split up and patchy in their coverage.
This patch improves that situation.

It also adds tests for the triviality and aggregate-ness of std::array.
Even though the Standard doesn't explicitly require it, libc++ has been
making std::array<T, N> trivial whenever T is trivial for any value of N.

The patch also adds tests checking that std::array<T, N> is an aggregate
for all values of N.

This patch adds tests that highlight some problems with the current array implementation. Basically, it highlights that we need to pick between:

  1. Don't implement constexpr support properly in std::array<T, 0>
  2. Make std::array<T, 0> non-trivial even when T is trivial (which is an ABI break)
  3. Return nullptr from std::array<T, 0>::begin() (which is also an ABI break)

Note that both ABI breaks are benign -- I would be surprised if folks relied on std::array<T, 0> at ABI boundaries.

Next, I'll submit a patch that picks (3) as the best solution for now, which is also what other implementations do.

I'll merge the tests into -- abandoning this.

Sorry for the confusion.
