  Log Message:
  [clang-tidy] Add portability-std-allocator-const check

Report use of `std::vector<const T>` (and similar containers of const
elements). These are now allowed in standard C++ due to undefined
`std::allocator<const T>`. They do not compile with libstdc++ or MSVC.
Future libc++ will remove the extension (D120996).
See docs/clang-tidy/checks/portability-std-allocator-const.rst for detail.

I have attempted clean-up in a large code base. Here are some statistics:

* 98% are related to the container `std::vector`, among `deque/forward_list/list/multiset/queue/set/stack/vector`.
* 24% are related to `std::vector<const std::string>`.
* Both `std::vector<const absl::string_view>` and `std::vector<const int>` contribute 2%. The other contributors spread over various class types.

The check can be useful to other large code bases and may serve as an example
for future libc++ strictness improvement.

Note: on MSVC where -fdelayed-template-parsing is the default, the check cannot
catch cases in uninstantiated templates.
