[Interpreter] Move context chain search loop to handler

Moves the context chain search loop out of generated bytecode, and into
the (Lda|Ldr|Sda)ContextSlot handler, by passing the context depth in as
an additional operand. This should decrease the bytecode size and
increase performance for deep context chain searches, at the cost of
slightly increasing bytecode size for shallow context access.
