Field translations are not being removed from the config table when a field is removed from a view.

To reproduce, add a field to a view. Create a translation of this field. Now remove the field from the view.

If you then `select * from config where name = 'views.view.yourview' - you'll see the translations for the field you have removed still exist in config, for languages where the field has been translated.

In my example view, it's using a table layout, and I have additional columns in the table, from the old translation data, that should not exist.

I marked this as Major as translated field config is being left in the config table for a translated field for a view.

filterNestedArray is a recursive function. This patch addresses the $changed variable being incorrectly set.

I've confirmed this properly removes translated content config from fields, when they are removed from a view.

Nice find! This will still need tests though.

As a bug fix this can go against 8.1.x
