Compiler rejects an equality operation on a record type when the nominal
subtype of a component is a constrained subtype of an Unchecked_Union
type, and that subtype is declared outside of the enclosing record

Tested on x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, committed on trunk


	* exp_ch4.adb (Unconstrained_UU_In_Component_Declaration): A
	component declaration whose subtype indication is an entity name
	without an explicit constraint is an Unchecked_Union type only
	if the entity has an unconstrained nominal subtype (record type
	or private type) whose parent type is an Unchecked_Union.
