Introduce option to serialize less in frontend_server

This CL introduces an option - unsafe-package-serialization - where a
caller can select to reuse the serialization of packages. This makes it
unsafe in general, but if never invalidating packages, such as in tests,
it can be used to greatly increase the speed of processing many inputs.

This change - used in flutter - takes the time it takes to run
`flutter test` in `packages/flutter` from ~2 minutes 30 seconds to
~1 minute 15 seconds (on my machine).
A change to how flutter test executes the frontend_server
(to pass the option) is needed for it to take effect though.
