[Python-Dev] Recent buildbot reports and asyncio test failures


Update. I'm collaborating with Pablo to fix these recent regressions.
We had to revert 2 changes to fix asyncio and multiprocessing test
failures and crashes.

New issue:

"opcode cache for LOAD_GLOBAL emits false alarm in memory leak hunting"

INADA-san worked around this issue by disabling the new opcode cache
(LOAD_GLOBAL optimization) when Python is compiled in debug mode.

We should try to find a more long term solution after beta1 release.

Andrew Svetlov identified the root issue, it's a side effect of a new feature:

He reverted his change to fix the bug. We may reconsider the feature
after beta1 (that's up to our Release Manager, I guess).

Note: I pushed 2 changes to attempt to fix the issue, but they didn't
fix the issue. We can consider to revert them after beta1.

Pablo and me identified the root issue:

I reverted a change to fix the regression.

Sadly, previously I also reverted a different change which wasn't the
root cause. We can consider to maybe reapply it after beta1.
