This looks like an over-recursion. Marking as fuzzblocker because over-recursions tend to generate hard to match crashes.

We probably need some way to check for over recursions under irregexp::CompilePattern, in particular in:
 - js::irregexp::RegExpDisjunction::ToNode
 - js::irregexp::RegExpQuantifier::ToNode
 - js::irregexp::RegExpLookahead::ToNode
 - js::irregexp::RegExpCapture::ToNode
 - js::irregexp::RegExpAlternative::ToNode

Currently we seem to have already 2 different mechanism for avoiding stack overflow:

I guess we could factor the CheckOverRecursed function under the RegExpCompiler, and use it in the ToNode functions, or we could reuse the counter which is already on the RegExpCompiler.

A third option would be to guard for enough space in the CompilePattern function, and check that we do not generate any pattern which would recurse too deeply while we are under the RegExpParser<…>::ParseDisjunction function.

The simplest option would be to use CheckOverRecursed and make ToNode infallible.  It's strange this recursion is present, though, as irregexp seems to try to avoid direct recursion wherever possible.

irregexp: Report JS Errors on stack overflow.

This patch add checks for over recursions, which can happen as the irregexp
parser creates a tree structure of captures & look-ahead bodies.  These
structures are then traversed with a non-tail optimizable recursions, which
consume stack space and cause a stack overflow in the allocator.

On stack overflow, the on_sucess node is returned, and the flag
reg_exp_too_big is checked to return the same error message as
the RegExpCompiler::Assemble function.
