#6730: Default 'bp_xprofile_change_field_visibility' cap check passes

 Reported here:

 If an admin has enabled 'Enforce field visibility' for a profile field, in
 v2.4.0, the "Change" link still shows up when a user attempts to edit the
 profile field.

 The problem is due to the `bp_current_user_can()` modifications that were
 made in #6501 (my fault!) and how we do capability argument checks for the
 `'bp_xprofile_change_field_visibility'` cap.

 The `'bp_xprofile_change_field_visibility'` cap checks if a specific
 capability argument is valid with `isset( $args[0] )`.  In BP 2.3.4, this
 would fail; in BP 2.4.0, this passes since `$args[0]` is now an empty
 array and not `null`.

 I've attached a patch that fixes this with a unit test.
