Fix validity checking for inferred types

GHC is suposed to uphold the principle that an /inferred/ type
for a let-binding should obey the rules for that module.  E.g.
we should only accept an inferred higher rank type if we have
RankNTypes on.

But we were failing to check this: TcValidity.checkValidType
allowed arbitrary rank for inferred types.

This patch fixes the bug.  It might in principle cause some breakage,
but if so that's good: the user should add RankNTypes and/or a
manual signature.  (And almost every package has explicit user
signatures for all top-level things anyway.)  Let's see.

Fixes #17213.
