proposed fix

This patch makes NodeLists use a shared cache, similar to the one
HTMLCollections use. With it, ChildNodeList::length() is no longer in Shark

Above comments indicate that different people get different timings on these
tests. This is apparently due to them being entirely memory-bound - over 90% of
time is spent on a single instruction, "lwz r3,20(r3)" (which is what
Node::nextSibling() compiles to).

On my machine, the "insert" time on Hixie's test went down from 26 seconds to 7
seconds on TOT, while shipping Safari result is under 6 seconds. Believe it or
not, David's reduction takes 64 seconds with shipping Safari, and 7 seconds on
TOT with this patch (I haven't measured bare TOT). Go figure.
