fix Array#sum and Enumerable#sum #4309

This changes Array#sum and Enumerable#sum to use Kahan's compensated summation algorithm, so we have the same rounding artifacts as MRI.

It also includes some of the MRI's cascading coercion behaviour in Array#sum

Now all tests in test/mri/ruby/test_array.rb and test/mri/ruby/test_enum.rb pass, except for those depending on 'mathn' which I can't test because of an unrelated issue.

Consider this a regression fix for #4297

I'm not entirely comfortable that RubyArray is now an expert on Fixnum, Bignum, Rational and Float, but the behaviour matches MRI's.
