Bug description

The Typecore.classify_expression considers Texp_construct as a construction of statically known size, even for unboxed constructors. The provided example Segfaults.

Steps to reproduce

type a = A of b [@@unboxed]
and b = X of a | Y

let rec a =
(if Sys.opaque_identity true then
X a

let v =
match a with
| A (X (A (X v))) ->
| _ -> a
