Function.isGenerator(f) -> boolean

Indicates whether a given function is a generator function. As specified on the attached TC39 wiki page.

Should be easy -- I'll try to do today.

Attached patch Function.isGenerator (obsolete) — Splinter Review
This version tests for generator functions by testing whether a function a) is interpreted and b) starts its script with JSOP_GENERATOR. This seems a bit brittle. Is it worth nabbing a JSFUN_XXX bit and setting that on the JSScript flags?

Brendan: what was the reason we couldn't put isGenerator on Function.prototype as a (non-enumerable) zero-argument self-test? Does it create web incompatibilities?

Ready for review.

Nit: rval is a canonical name for a jsval or js::Value local. Suggest result or answer instead.

Nit: prevailing style prefers != 0 for unsigned tests, not > 0, but:

Non-nit: we don't need a length check here, scripts by definition have at least JSOP_STOP as a bytecode. So you could get rid of the script local, or keep it and assert that length != 0.

I'm glad to have a regression test but this space in the suite is for actual bugs we don't want to reopen, not features being added and covered. IIRC from discussion with Waldo, something like tests/js1_8_5/extensions/is-generator.js would be better.

Best to update the strawman at the bug's URL to match what this patch implements.

r=me with these addressed; happy to look again if you like.
