Bug #15477: Proc#arity returns -1 for composed lambda Procs of known arguments
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/15477

* Author: robb (Robb Shecter)

* ruby -v: ruby 2.6.0p0 (2018-12-25 revision 66547) [x86_64-linux]
* Backport: 2.4: UNKNOWN, 2.5: UNKNOWN, 2.6: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
```
f = -> x { x + 2 }
g = -> x { x * 2 }
h = f << g

f.arity # => 1
g.arity # => 1
h.arity # => -1  THIS SHOULD BE 1 because h "knows" that it takes exactly 1 argument:
h.call  # => ArgumentError (given 0, expected 1)
```

Lambda Procs which are composed using `<<` seem to partially lose knowledge of their arity. I don't know if this affects other procs, or the `>>` operator as well. The Proc#arity docs state that -1 is returned only when a variable or unknown number of arguments are expected by the Proc. But here, that's not the case.
