[wasm-hints] Add tool to inject compilation hints into Wasm modules

The python script allows to inject hints into a Wasm module. Hints are
injected into a newly created custom section named "compilationHints"
that is used by the compiler to determine its compilation strategy. The
section is placed after the functions section and before the code
section.
