[BUG] Extended classes can't access their private variables #1851

If a class - written in Zephir - contains private variables and extended in PHP, it won't be able to access those variables in its original methods.

I ran into this when I was trying to extend \Phalcon\Session\Manager and \Phalcon\Session\Bag in v4.0.0-alpha.4

Code to reproduce the issue:

/** Example.zep **/

class Example
    private privateVariable;

    public function setPrivateVariable(value)
        let this->privateVariable = value;

        return this;

    public function getPrivateVariable()
        return this->privateVariable;

In PHP it is extended without any new methods:

/** My/Example.php **/

namespace My;

class Example extends \Example {}

Test code:

$example = new \My\Example;



Notice: Undefined property: My\Example::$privateVariable

Changing private variables to protected solved the errors.

Zephir version: 0.11.12
PHP: 7.3.4 or 7.2.16 (tried both)
