Fix null check elimination
The existing null check elimination mechanism suffered from the same
limitation as the SSA renaming: it took shortcuts that were valid in
a trace compilation world, but not in a method compilation world.
This CL replaces the old mechanism, and additionally takes advantage
of some the fact that "this" is always non-null, as are objects returned
from OP_NEW_* (thanks Ian!).
Two test cases added. The one for ensuring that unnecessary null checks
are elminated requires manual inspection. The other - that we don't
eliminate a necessary null check - is disabled until exceptions are working.
