Created an attachment (id=85290)
 --> (https://bugs.webkit.org/attachment.cgi?id=85290&action=review)
Updated attachment removing flaky unit test, reverting icon to latte cup (see comment)

It is difficult to do a unit test for this for the following reasons:

- We need a dedicated v8 API to do a collection -- right now this patch callsV8::LowMemoryNotification() whose implementation could change (result: flaky test)
REMEDY: add new v8 public API for explicitly doing a single collection

- JSC currently does not report GC events on the timeline (not plumbed out) so this button runs open-loop
REMEDY: I have opened up a bug for this: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=56070
