    add the infrastructure for Coq to automatically infer the "inG" instances · 95c486ef

    I added a new typeclass "inGF" to witness that a particular *functor* is part of \Sigma. inG, in contrast, witnesses a particular *CMRA* to be in there, after applying the functor to "\later iProp".
    inGF can be inferred if that functor is consed to the head of \Sigma, and it is preserved by consing a new functor to \Sigma. This is not the case for inG since the recursive occurence of \Sigma also changes.
    For evry construction (auth, sts, saved_prop), there is an instance infering the respective authG, stsG, savedPropG from an inGF. There is also a global inG_inGF, but Coq is unable to use it.
    
    I tried to instead have *only* inGF, since having both typeclasses seemed weird. However, then the actual type that e.g. "own" is about is the result of applying a functor, and Coq entirely fails to infer anything.
    
    I had to add a few type annotations in heap.v, because Coq tried to use the "authG_inGF" instance before the A got fixed, and ended up looping and expanding endlessly on that proof of timelessness.
    This does not seem entirely unreasonable, I was honestly surprised Coq was able to infer the types previously.
