Consider not nulling out Reg
Exp Object -> Reg Exp Shared pointer on GC
This is a weak pointer and we can currently null it on GC (allowing us to collect the RegExpShared). However, RegExpShared is not that big (we can discard regex JIT code independently) and getting rid of this weak pointer and read barrier might help regexp perf and it would simplify bug 1115355 a lot. Let's do some Try pushes and compare AWSY numbers.
This is pretty straight-forward. sharedRef now returns a PreBarriered instead of ReadBarriered RegExpShared*.

RegExpShared can hold onto malloc'd data tables that are used by irregexp JIT code. Now that RegExpShared might be kept alive longer, it would be nice to discard these tables whenever we discard regexp JIT code. This is pretty straight-forward, except there's one problem with the current approach. In theory at least we can have the following scenario: (1) Add the table to RegExpShared while we're compiling the regexp code. (2) Then potentially GC and collect these tables. (3) Then finish regexp compilation that relies on the now discarded tables. So I refactored things a bit to add these tables to a Vector and then add them to the RegExpShared at the end of the compilation. I also changed this code to use UniquePtr, so we no longer have to free each table explicitly.
