FIX: Moderator actions and small actions shouldn’t prevent fully merged topics from closing (#13200)

When a topic is fully merged into another topic we close it and schedule its deleting. But, because of a bug, if the merged topic contains some moderator actions or small actions it won’t be merged. This change fixes this problem.

An important note: in general, we don’t want to close a topic after moving posts if it still contains some regular posts or whispers. But when we are moving posts to a private message we don’t want the notice about it to be publicly visible. So we use whispers with action_code == ‘split_topic’ instead of small_actions in such cases and we should ignore this specific kind of whispers when decide if we should close the merged topic.
