Bug 646597 - Remove unneeded #ifdef DEBUG: use DebugOnly instead; r=bhackett Assignment to a DebugOnly variable results in a call to either the empty 'operator =' or to an empty implicit 1-arg constructor and empty copy constructor when in non-debug mode. Either of these get inlined and eliminated as dead code above -00, so there is no benefit to skipping this assignment for non-debug builds.

 * it isn't worth the pain.)  JS_Assert(), although unfortunately
 * named, is part of SpiderMonkey's stable, external API, so this
 * isn't quite as bad as it seems.
 *
 * Once mfbt needs object files, this unholy union with JS_Assert()
 * will be broken.
 *
 * JS_Assert is present even in release builds, for the benefit of applications
 * that build DEBUG and link against a non-DEBUG SpiderMonkey library.
