2614. [filesys.ts] [PDTS] Incorrect postconditions for path copy/move constructor

The postconditions for the copy/move constructor for path are shown as "empty()". This appears to have been incorrectly copied from the default ctor.

Remove the 'postconditions' clause from the copy/move ctor.

[2014-02-07, Beman Dawes suggests wording]

Proposed resolution:

Change 8.4.1 [path.construct]:

      path(const path& p);
      path(path&& p) noexcept;

Effects: Constructs an object of class path with pathname having the original value of p.pathname. In the second form, p is left in a valid but unspecified state.

Postconditions: empty().
