      Do not bind coercion variables in SpecConstr rules
    arranged to reject any SpecConstr call pattern that mentioned
    a coercion in the pattern.
    There was a good reason for that
    -- see Note [SpecConstr and casts] --
    but I didn't realise how important it was to accept patterns
    that mention casts in /terms/.  Trac #14936 showed this up.
    This patch just narrows the restriction to discard only
    the cases where the coercion is mentioned only in types.
    Fortunately that was pretty easy to do.
