When we exit a block under icount with instructions left to execute we
might need a shorter than normal block to take us to the next
deterministic event. Instead of creating a throwaway block on demand
we use the existing compile flags mechanism to ensure we fetch (or
compile and fetch) a block with exactly the number of instructions we
need.
