2750. construct_at without constructor call

Section: 7.7  [expr.const]     Status: DR     Submitter: CWG     Date: 2023-06-16

[Accepted as a DR at the June, 2023 meeting.]

Subclause 7.7 [expr.const] paragraph 6 talks about invoking the "underlying constructor", but there is no constructor when creating an aggregate or a scalar type.

Proposed resolution:

For the purposes of determining whether an expression E is a core constant expression, the evaluation of the body of a member function of std::allocator<T> as defined in [allocator.members], where T is a literal type, is ignored. Similarly, the evaluation of the body of std::construct_at or std::ranges::construct_at is considered to include only the underlying constructor call initialization of the T object if the first argument (of type T*) points to storage allocated with std::allocator<T> or to an object whose lifetime began within the evaluation of E.
