More helpful error message when instantiating an abstract class
Calling a literal ActiveRecord::Base.new raises NoMethodError, since it ends up calling Class.abstract_class? which does not exist. Similarly, instantiating an actual abstract class hits the database, when conventionally it should immediately throw NotImplementedError. ActiveRecord::Base can't be made abstract without breaking many, many things, so check for it separately.
