Description of Problem:
Auto-Fix of Generate Class does give an incomplete class definition (does not care about the constraints)

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Create a console application
2. Paste this code as starting point:
using System;

namespace TestConsole
	public interface IBase
	public class Test 
		public void Generate<T>() where T:IBase, new()

	class MainClass
		public static void Main (string[] args)
			var testConsole = new Test ();
			testConsole.Generate<Data> ();
3. set the cursor to the word: Data; from the line: testConsole.Generate<Data> ();
4. Press Alt+Enter to show quick fixes
5. Select Generate Class (or Generate Nested Class)

Expected result:
Generated Data class should take care about the constraints:
 - here: new() meaning it has to define a default constructor; 
 - IBase, meaning it implements this interface.

So: there are 3 kinds of constraints that should be considered when generate Data class type:
new() = Default constructor
I ... and various names = base classes, interfaces
struct = the generated type has to be a struct type (non nullable type)

Actual result: 
public class Data
