[ptr-compr] Introduce StrongTaggedValue and TaggedValue

... which represent potentially compressed Object and MaybeObject
values respectively. They provide methods for checking the smi/weak
tags which don't require decompression and conversion to Smi/HeapObject
combined with tag checks.

The new classes should help to write a bit more efficient runtime (C++)
code for the cases when we don't need the full decompressed value
immediately.

Drive-by-fix: fix ptr-compr build after Object::operator->() removal.
