Fix DeriveAnyClass (Trac #9968)

The main issue concerned things like

   data T a = MkT a deriving( C Int )

which is supposed to generate

   instance C Int (T a) where {}

But the 'Int' argument (called cls_tys in the code) wasn't
even being passed to inferConstraints and mk_data_eqn, so it
really had no chance.   DeriveAnyClass came along after this
code was written!

Anyway I did quite a bit of tidying up in inferConstraints.

Also I discovered that this case was not covered at all

   data T a b = MkT a b deriving( Bifunctor )

What constraints should we generate for the instance context?
We can deal with classes whose last arg has kind *, like Eq, Ord;
or (* -> *), like Functor, Traversable.  But we really don't have
a story for classes whose last arg has kind (* -> * -> *).

So I augmented checkSideConditions to check for that and give
a sensible error message.

ToDo: update the user manual.
