style: Use update() to update declarations from Servo_DeclarationBloc…

This method is used when updating the SMIL override style and from Web
Animations' Animation.commitStyles method. By using update we accurately return
false when no change is made to a declaration block.

For SMIL this simply acts as an optimization, meaning we can avoid updating the
SMIL override style ub some cases.

For Animation.commitStyles, however, this allows us to avoid generating
a mutation record. Normally making a redundant change to an attribute *does*
generate a mutation record but the style attribute is different. All browsers
avoid generating a mutation record for a redundant change to inline style.
This is specified in the behavior for setProperty[1] which does not update the
style attribute if updated is false.
