Compat-shim for AbstractController::Rendering#view_assigns

_assigns was deprecated in favor of view_assigns after Rails-3.0.0 was released. Since we are not able to predict when the _assigns/view_assigns patch will be released (I thought it would have been in 3.0.1, but 3.0.1 bypassed this change for a security fix), this bit ensures that we do the right thing without knowing anything about the Rails version we are dealing with.

Once that change is released, this can be changed to something that checks for the Rails version when the module is being interpreted, as it was before commit dd0095.
