While investigating LazyScriptCache potential out-come, I noticed that the way we use to check isRelazifiable() [1] implies that we would prevent relazification when branch pruning is enabled.

We should not disable relazification when branch pruning is enabled, but we should ensure that we disable it when we use either the Debugger, or the environment variable to spew the Code Coverage information.

This patch change the code coverage function from the JSCompartment to
gather the result of 2 different reasons for enable code coverage.

The first reason is the Debugger, profiling option ( -D ), and the LCov
output enabled via an environment variable.  In such case we want the code
coverage result to be monotonic, and to not loose any of the profiled
information, thus disabling relazification.

The second reason is the Branch Pruning optimization, which uses code
coverage counters as a hint for the number of executions that we might
expect.  In such case, we want to limit the memory impact and only monitor
functions which would later be optimized with the branch pruning
optimization (or any others based on approximating code coverage)

This patch adds 2 functions to account for these different goals, and
respectively call codeCoverageForDebug when there is no concern about the
optimizing case.

Distinguish code coverage usages, and disable it by default in the interpreter.

Makes sense.
