* lisp/emacs-lisp/cl-preloaded.el (cl-struct-define): Fix duplication

which resulted in incomplete list of parents in one copy of the
cl-structure-class class.

;; We used to use `defconst' instead of `set' but that
;; has a side-effect of purecopying during the dump, so that the
;; class object stored in the tag ends up being a *copy* of the
;; one stored in the `cl--class' property! We could have fixed
;; this needless duplication by using the purecopied object, but
;; that then breaks down a bit later when we modify the
;; cl-structure-class class object to close the recursion
;; between cl-structure-object and cl-structure-class (because
;; modifying purecopied objects is not allowed. Since this is
;; done during dumping, we could relax this rule and allow the
;; modification, but it's cumbersome).
;; So in the end, it's easier to just avoid the duplication by
;; avoiding the use of the purespace here.

;; In the cl-generic support, we need to be able to check
;; if a vector is a cl-struct object, without knowing its particular type.
;; So we use the (otherwise) unused function slots of the tag symbol
