Issue Description:

The following unsound code is allowed to compile, which lets us turn a subclass instance into a superclass instance:

protocol P {
  associatedtype X where X == Self
  func foo() -> X
}

class C : P {
  typealias X = C
  func foo() -> X {
    return C()
  }
}
class D : C {}

func foo<T : P>(_ x: inout T) {
  x = x.foo()
}

var d = D()
foo(&d)
print(type(of: d)) // C

When checking the constraint X == Self, we should treat Self as being the dynamic self and therefore reject the conformance.

Ouch!

I think the only safe thing to do here is to not allow a class to conform to P at all.

Or only final classes, or something.
