The following program panics with GHC 8.6.3 and HEAD:

{-# LANGUAGE ConstraintKinds #-}
{-# LANGUAGE DataKinds #-}
{-# LANGUAGE PolyKinds #-}
{-# LANGUAGE QuantifiedConstraints #-}
module Bug where

import Data.Kind

type Const a b = a
type SameKind (a :: k) (b :: k) = (() :: Constraint)
class (forall (b :: k). SameKind a b) => C (k :: Const Type a)

Bug.hs:11:36: error:ghc: panic! (the 'impossible' happened)
  (GHC version 8.6.3 for x86_64-unknown-linux):
        No skolem info:
  Call stack:
      CallStack (from HasCallStack):

        pprPanic, called at compiler/typecheck/TcErrors.hs:2891:5 in ghc:TcErrors

As with #16244, I imagine that the real culprit is that SameKind a b would force a :: k, which would be ill-scoped.
