Patron merge does not transfer checkout history

Bug Description

Evergreen 2.10+ / Confirmed in 2.12.

With the move to a dedicated circulation history table (bug #1527342), merging patron accounts no longer carries the circulation history from the subordinate user to the lead user account. Instead, the history data stays linked to the (now) deleted user account.

To confirm:

1. Enable circ history tracking for 2 users (ideally 2 with same name for easy searching).
2. Check out items to both patrons
3. Load the 2 patrons in the patron search UI and merge one into the other.
4. action.usr_circ_history rows will remain unchanged and one set will still point to the deleted user.

To test, follow confirmation steps above and confirm all action.usr_circ_history rows have a 'usr' value equal to the lead (merged-to) patron.

At time of writing the affected usr_merge() function is identical on 2.12 and 3.0, so one patch can apply to both.

I'll open another bug for this, but for reference I ran into this error testing this:
