review(XXS) 6564610: assert(UseCompiler || CompileTheWorld, "UseCompiler should be set by now.")

The assert mentioned in the bug synopsis is sometimes observed when the 
code cache gets full.  What happens is a race between a check for 
UseCompiler in NonTieredCompPolicy::event() and checks in asserts in 
method_invocation_event() and method_back_branch_event(). The value of 
UseCompiler can change in-between. It is wrong to assert that 
UseCompiler is set or not because it can change asynchronously at any 
point. The solution is to remove the asserts.
