Fix flakiness in previews browsertests

The previous logic relied upon the hints requested by the store upon a
navigation to a url being loaded prior to the commit. This was not
guaranteed to happen when cores were not available on a machine for
background threads.

The HintCache has been modified so that it now runs the hint loaded
callback even in the case where no hints are available for the host.

Additionally, a histogram has been added that tracks the loading of
hints from the hint cache store has in PreviewsOptimizationGuide. The
tests now run a priming navigation that waits for the hints to be
loaded. This ensures that the hints are guaranteed to be available
during the tests.
