[luatex] Hyphenation of \verb in LuaLaTeX 1.0.x

I think actually it was more or less accidentally  not hyphenating
previously (or in xetex) as hyphenchar is 45 hyphenation isn't
suppressed in verb but the first word (only) of each verb  is not
considered as a word for hyphenation due to some of the verb setup
latex does, that is certainly not a documented feature of latex:-)

the new \hyphenationbounds=1 possibility of luatex 1.x would give the
old behaviour here but I think setting the font's hyphenchar to -1 (or
better perhaps latex should make \verb set the language to none)
