`rescue *[]` should be equivalent to `rescue` as `method_call(*[])` is equivalent to `method_call`

Description

Splatting an empty array to a construct that takes a list is supposed to be equivalent to specifying no list

def foo
end

foo *[] #works

So rescue *[] should be equivalent to rescue

begin
  raise 'error' #Uncaught exception
rescue *[]
  puts 'caught'
end
