    fourthTier: DFG GetById patching shouldn't distinguish between self lists and proto lists · 73823ba8

    Previously if you did self accesses and then wanted to do a prototype access, you'd
    have a bad time: the prototype accesses would be forced to take slow path because
    the self list wouldn't allow prototype accesses. Likewise if you did prototype (or
    chain) accesses and then wanted to do a self access, similar stupidity would ensue.
    This fixes the stupidity.
    I believe that this was introduced way back in the days of the old interpreter,
    where distinguishing between self lists, proto lists, and chain lists was meaningful
    for interpreter performance: it meant fewer branches to evaluate those lists. Then
    it got mostly carried over to the old JIT since the old JIT was just initially an
    optimized version of the old interpreter, and then later it got carried over to the
    DFG because I didn't know any better at the time. Now I do know better and I'm
    fixing it.

    Add tests that show why this is important. These tests speed up by more than 3x.
