I suspected that they should just be deleted.  Looks good.

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.
