timing fix for RCTCxxBridge.executeApplicationScript (#25991)
In one of our test apps (actually on Mac not iOS, but same code) we very consistently crash in RCTCxxBridge.executeApplicationScript when js debugging, due to a timing issue where another thread has reset _reactInstance in between the null check on self->_reactInstance and usage of it on these lines:

    } else if (self->_reactInstance) {

The thread doing the reset is doing so switching the executorClass to WebSocketExecutor.
In the scenario we crash, the packager has a bundle ready and quickly returns it, though its a 34MB string being passed to NSDataBigString which must be taking long enough for the other thread to get a chance to reset.

## Changelog

[iOS] [Fixed] - Fix crash in RCTCxxBridge.executeApplicationScript
Pull Request resolved: #25991

Test Plan: Ran apple code path in normal from bundle file and js debugging scenarios.
