Bug #12367: [PATCH] Declaring an already defined class with Object as the new superclass does not raise an error
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/12367#change-59208

* Author: Benoit Daloze
* Status: Closed
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: Benoit Daloze

* Backport: 2.1: REQUIRED, 2.2: DONE, 2.3: DONE
----------------------------------------
For example:

~~~ ruby
class SuperclassIgnoresObject < A
end
SuperclassIgnoresObject.superclass # A

class SuperclassIgnoresObject < Object # Should raise a superclass mismatch but it doesn't.
end
SuperclassIgnoresObject.superclass # A
~~~

This seems an unintended side-effect of using Object as the default superclass in the code and not differentiating given/non-given superclass.
In insns.def defineclass:

~~~ c
if (super == Qnil) {
    super = rb_cObject;
}
...
if (super != rb_cObject) {
    // check is superclass mismatch
}
~~~

Proposed patch:

~~~ diff

Can I commit?
