Okay. I thought the patch was about fast refills only. But indeed, we can clean these unused
definitions in the same patch. On one hand, removing trivial unused getters would require us to add
them back when they are needed. On the other hand, it seems that TLAB does every statistic
internally, and we should instead force callers to use higher-level TLAB methods to access and
interpret them.

Code looks good! I think we still need Serviceability to acknowledge this is okay to do.
