Backport LocalJumpError and EQQ fixes from 9.2 #4812

This backports the fixes for #4694 and #4804 from 9.2 (master) to 9.1 (jruby-9.1).

Fixes #4686.
Fixes #4577.

The logic here adds finally wrappers around all call paths that
receive a block. When the call exits, the block is marked
"escaped" since it no longer has a method activation to go with
it. This indicates that non-local flow, like break, should
immediately trigger a LocalJumpError.

This passes specs but has not been tested extensively with other
types of call forms that receive blocks.
* Add literal closure method to IR closure-accepting interface
* Replace double boolean in JIT code with enum
* Check for null in non-local return logic
Most case/when will have neither an undefined case value (for bare
case statements) nor multiple values for a given when (splatted)
so in those cases we can simply do a plain eqq call + isTrue. The
unusual cases will still go to the old isEQQ logic, so there may
be value in optimizing that path later.

The main logic in isEQQ is the processing of a splatted array of
when values in sequence, and a small bit of logic that simply
checks truthiness of the when value for a bare case statement.

This change reduces the bytecode for all case/when, and by more
than half for the typical form. It also allows the === call to be
optimized with invokedynamic like a normal call.
