Analyzer accepts potentially-const expressions in const contructor invocations #36215

Analyzer accepts this:

class C {
  Object inner;
  const C(int x) : inner = const C(x);

This should not be accepted: x is not a constant expression. It is merely a potentially constant expression.

Proof by contradiction:

var x;
print(new C(x));

By using new, inner cannot be initialized to a const C of x, because x is not const.
