Follow-up from #2750167: Config translation synchronization fails

Proposed resolution

Re save all configuration. We can't really know how all config overrides have implemented \Drupal\Core\Config\ConfigFactoryOverrideBase() so the safest thing to do is just to re-save all configuration and let the save event clean up for us.

Version: 8.2.x-dev » 8.3.x-dev

Drupal 8.2.0-beta1 was released on August 3, 2016, which means new developments and disruptive changes should now be targeted against the 8.3.x-dev branch. For more information see the Drupal 8 minor version schedule and the Allowed changes during the Drupal 8 release cycle.

Discussed with @xjm, @webchick, @effulgentsia and @Cottser. We agreed to keep this critical because:

  1. We haven't confirmed that we're still not facing the issue with config sync discovered in #2750167: Config translation synchronization fails has been fixed on existing sites
  2. Existing sites which have config in this situation will have expected config change when they do anything that re-saves this config

Here's the whack it with a hammer upgrade path approach.

The beta allowed changes include critical issues, so the beta target tag is not applicable.

I agree with alex, its not really worth to try to optimize the update here. In case we miss any case, it will hurt much more, than a little bit more time to run the update.

    +    $this->assertFalse($config_override->get($key_to_be_removed), 'The spanish override for the missing field has been removed.');

    Can we use something like assertNull?

    +    $this->assertTrue($config_override->isNew() && empty($config_override->get()), 'After updating the system.cron spanish override does not exist.');

    Its weird to not have splitted up this into two assertions. It makes debugging harder than it would have to be

Re #9.2 I did that because isNew() should be enough and doing it on separate lines looks weird to me. But so be it... here's the change.

Let's hope no one is doing anything made on config save... mind you if they are config import would probably be broken too.
