Tasks get evicted from the compile_queue if their invocation counter 
hasn't increased during TieredCompileTaskTimeout. 

I'll do a proper fix, it is the right thing to do and should be pretty 
quick. I'll change the comment to an enum that represent who submitted 
the compile, and add a table for the comments. This could be useful in 
other settings to.
