Fix Trac #2141: invalid record update

See Note [Record field lookup] in TcEnv.  The fix here
is quite straightforward.

You might think we should have tcLookupGlobal here, since record fields
are always top level. But consider
f = e { f = True }
Then the renamer (which does not keep track of what is a record selector
and what is not) will rename the definition thus
f_7 = e { f_7 = True }
Now the type checker will find f_7 in the *local* type environment, not
the global one. It's wrong, of course, but we want to report a tidy
error, not in TcEnv.notFound. -}
