Don't run unsafe compiler passes
As a preparation for replacing v3_codegen with a new code generator, remove unsafe optimization passes. Especially the older compiler passes have implicit assumptions about how the code is generated. Remove the optimizations in beam_block (keep the code that creates blocks) because they are unsafe. beam_block also calls beam_utils:live_opt/1, which is unsafe. Remove beam_type because it calls beam_utils:live_opt/1, and also because it recalculates the number of heaps words and number of live registers in allocation instructions, thus potentially hiding bugs in other passes. Remove beam_receive because it is unsafe. Remove beam_record because it is the only remaining user of beam_utils:anno_defs/1. Remove beam_reorder because it makes much more sense to run it as an early SSA-based optimization pass. Remove the now unused functions in beam_utils: anno_def/1 delete_annos/1 is_killed_block/2 live_opt/1 usage/3 Note that the following test cases will fail because of the removed optimizations: compile_SUITE:optimized_guards/1 compile_SUITE:bc_options/1 receive_SUITE:ref_opt/1
