Update Tree-sitter syntax highlighting synchronously for parses that complete sync #17923

The Background

In #17339, I moved Tree-sitter's parsing to a background thread, but allowed a limited amount of parsing work to be done on the main thread. But even if the parsing completed on the main thread, the syntax tree would be returned via an async method.

While working on #17879, I noticed that this asynchronous behavior was somewhat inconvenient. Some tests failed because the syntax tree wouldn't update until the next tick after a small text change.

The Fix

In this PR, I've updated the TreeSitterLanguageMode so that in the case where parsing completes synchronously, the language mode's state will be updated synchronously too.

I've also fixed a number of other small bugs in TreeSitterLanguageMode that showed up in the test suite during #17339.
