In C++98 we can just conservatively assume that everything is an lvalue, 
since the things an lvalue can do are a superset of what an rvalue can 
do.  But that isn't the case in C++11, since an lvalue can't bind to an 
rvalue reference, so I changed lvalue_kind to work harder to figure out 
whether an expression is an lvalue or not.  PR 50835 is about a clash 
between this and our use of build_min_non_dep; for non-dependent 
expressions we first do full processing to figure out what their type is 
and then throw away most of that to build a simple expression with the 
original arguments and the resulting type.  Mostly this works fine, but 
it has problems with the complicated COND_EXPR lvalueness rules.  Fixed 
by representing the lvalueness of a COND_EXPR with a reference type.

Tested x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, applying to trunk.
