deps: cherry-pick 8ed65b97 from V8's upstream

Original commit message:

    Make FieldType::None() non-nullptr value to avoid undefined behaviour

    When FieldType::None() returns a cast Smi::FromInt(0), which translates
    as nullptr, the FieldType::IsNone() check becomes equivalent to
    `this == nullptr` which is not allowed by the standard and
    therefore optimized away as a false constant by GCC 6.

    This has lead to crashes when invoking methods on FieldType::None().

    Using a different Smi constant for FieldType::None() makes the compiler
    always include a comparison against that value. The choice of these
    constants has no effect as they are effectively arbitrary.
