Bug #10103: Unable to refine class with CONSTANT
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/10103#change-60403

----------------------------------------
When refining a class (such as `String` in the following example) it is impossible to assign a constant. The constant will get attached to the module containing the refinement instead of the refined class.  When inside of a `refine` block constants should get assigned to that class.

~~~
module Foobar
  refine String do
    FOO = "BAR"

    def foobar
      "foobar"
    end
  end
end

using Foobar

puts "".class::FOO # => uninitialized constant String::FOO (NameError)
puts "".foobar # => "foobar"
~~~
