[kernel] Initial migration of package kernel wave 1

This CL completes the migration of the first wave of
interdependent libraries in package:kernel, including ast.dart.

In order to ensure non-nullability on AST properties, the Transformer
has been split in 2 variants: Transformer which doesn't support
removal of nodes and RemovingTransformer which supports removal where
allowed by the context using 'removal sentinels'.

Start reviewing Transformer and RemovingTransformer in visitors.dart
since many of the changes are caused by the changes here.

Included in the migration are the mixin_deduplication.dart and
unreachable_code_elimination.dart since these needed porting to
the RemovingTransformer which was aided by opting in the libraries
which only depended on ast.dart.

A client-optimized language for fast apps on any platform

Dart is:

  • Optimized for UI: Develop with a programming language specialized around the needs of user interface creation.

  • Productive: Make changes iteratively: use hot reload to see the result instantly in your running app.

  • Fast on all platforms: Compile to ARM & x64 machine code for mobile, desktop, and backend. Or compile to JavaScript for the web.

Dart's flexible compiler technology lets you run Dart code in different ways, depending on your target platform and goals:

  • Dart Native: For programs targeting devices (mobile, desktop, server, and more), Dart Native includes both a Dart VM with JIT (just-in-time) compilation and an AOT (ahead-of-time) compiler for producing machine code.

  • Dart Web: For programs targeting the web, Dart Web includes both a development time compiler (dartdevc) and a production time compiler (dart2js).
