Bug #12345: A module's private constants are given with `Module#constant(false)`

----------------------------------------
A module's private constants are given with `Module#constant(false)`.

~~~ruby
module A
  X = 1
  Y = 2
  private_constant :Y
end

module B
  Z = 3
  W = 4
  private_constant :W
end

A.constants        # => [:X]
A.constants(false) # => [:X, :Y]

A.include B
A.constants        # => [:X, :Z]
A.constants(false) # => [:X, :Y]
~~~

Besides this, I request a way to get the private constants of a module. I want:

~~~ruby

A.private_constants        # => [:Y]
A.private_constants(false) # => [:Y]

A.include B
A.private_constants        # => [:Y, :W]
A.private_constants(false) # => [:Y]
~~~
