Richard and I uncovered this

{-# LANGUAGE RoleAnnotations #-}
module Bar( N ) where   -- Data constructor not exported

type role N representational
newtype N a = MkN Int


{-# LANGUAGE FlexibleContexts #-}
module Foo where

import Data.Coerce
import Data.Type.Coercion
import Bar

f :: Coercible (N a) (N b) => Coercion a b
f = Coercion

This compiles but it should not! It wrongly compiles by using nth (N a ~R N b); but (as Fig 4 of the Corcible paper says), we can't decompose a newtype at representational role.

Easy to fix.

In a8d39a7255df187b742fecc049f0de6528b9acad/ghc:

Fix #10285 by refusing to use NthCo on a newtype.

During this commit, I tested to make sure that CoreLint actually
catches the Core error if the typechecker doesn't.
