Make renderer-initiated navigation to about:blank to use the default path.

We used to believe renderer initiated navigation from a document to
about:blank needed to happen sometimes "synchronously". This isn't the
case, a PostTask is currently used. The only real requirement is when
committing the initial empty document.

This CL makes those navigation to use the default path instead.

This requires a few tests to be updated:

1) The initiator and a few other properties needs to be properly set. There
   are DCHECK in BeginNavigationInternal to enforce renderer initiated
   navigation always have a defined initiator.

2) runtime-console-log-handle-navigate.js: In console-log-navigate, console.log
   can use the 'getter' of the object several times (up to 2) to print the
   object. It triggers several about:blank navigations. Since they are now going
   to the browser process, they are committed later compared to the script
   execution. The test became less reliable. The test was using
   dp.Runtime.onceExecutionContextCreated to wait for new documents to commit,
   but waiting was started potentially after the event occured. The new test is
   now creating the Promise before triggering the action that will later resolve
   it. The action is either creating the iframe or making use of the logXXX()
   function. This is now fully reliable.
