`_transform_selected` ignores copy parameter when selected='all' #7194

On this function, as the call for check_array is after the check for selected == 'all', so X is passed to the transform function without being copied. Is this the expected behavior? I'd expect the X received by transform function to be a copy of the original X when copy=False.

Steps/Code to Reproduce

import numpy as np
from import _transform_selected

def transform(X):
    X[0, 0] = X[0, 0] + 2
    return X

X = np.asarray([[1, 2], [3, 4]])
X2 = _transform_selected(X, transform, selected='all', copy=True)

print X
print X2


Expected Results

To print

[[1 2]
 [3 4]]
[[3 2]
 [3 4]]

Actual Results


[[3 2]
 [3 4]]
[[3 2]
 [3 4]]
