When the std::pair constructors got more complex to handle, it
aggravated a preexisting algorithmic problem in template overload

As part of template argument deduction in a call, once we've deduced
all the template arguments we can but before we substitute them to
form an actual declaration, for any function parameters that don't
involve template parameters we need to check that it's possible to
convert the argument to the parameter type (wg21.link/cwg1391).

As a result, we end up calculating the conversion twice: once here,
and then again in add_function_candidate as part of normal overload
resolution.  Normally this isn't a big deal, but when the argument is
a multiply-nested initializer list, doubling the conversion processing
at each level leads to combinatorial explosion.

The patch for GCC 8 just disables the deduction-time check for a
multiply nested initializer list.  This is a small correctness
regression, but is unlikely to affect real code.

The patch for trunk avoids the duplication by remembering the
conversion we calculate at deduction time and then reusing it in
overload resolution rather than calculating it again.

Tested x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, applying to trunk and 8 (respectively).

            PR c++/80290 - memory-hog with std::pair.
            * pt.c (type_unification_real): Skip non-dependent conversion
            check for a nested list argument.
            (braced_init_depth): New.
