Fixed #2761 - ListField truncation on HTTP PATCH #3415

  • Previously, partial serialization during an update request, such as in the case of HTTP PATCH, would have truncated any old values in ListField data. This is because it had relied on the default value of an empty list. But an empty list has different functionality than the sentinel value of empty. Namely, the semantic meaning of an empty list on an update is to remove all the values. Instead, this PR changes validation internals to use the sentinel value of empty instead of an empty list.
  • Included minor refactor of both ListField and MultipleChoiceField, for the sake of consistent code.
  • Included proof of bug in a unit test at cb42b99.
  • Should resolve Issue PATCH with no data is updating ListField values on ModelSerializer instead of leaving them alone #2761.

- When not submitting key for list fields or multiple choice, partial
  serialization should result in empty state (key not there), not an
  empty list.
- Checked ``partial`` state when getting value in appropriate field
  classes; return ``empty`` immediately if key not submitted.
