Hello Lars Volker, Tim Armstrong,

I'd like you to reexamine a change. Please visit

Change subject: IMPALA-6416: extend Thread::Create to track instance id

IMPALA-6416: extend Thread::Create to track instance id

This commit builds upon IMPALA-3703. Each thread that
was created through Thread::Create() has a ThreadDebugInfo
object on the stack frame of Thread::SuperviseThread().
This object has stack allocated char buffers that can be
read during a debug session even if we only have minidumps.

However, with the old solution ThreadDebugInfo::instance_id
was set manually for each thread. It is too easy to forget
to set instance_id every time we create a new thread.

This commit has the assumption that if a thread has an
instance id associated, then the threads spawned by it will
always work on the same instance id. In Thread::StartThread
the parent thread passes its ThreadDebugInfo object to
its child who copies the instance id, and also stores a
pointer and system thread id to its parent.

This means if we set ThreadDebugInfo::instance_id in some
"root thread", then all descendant threads will annotate
themselves with the instance id automatically. Since threads
also record a pointer (and a system thread id) to their parent,
it might be also possible to reconstruct the thread creation

With GDB I tested if it copies the instance id at every
place where we previously needed to set it manually.

I added an automated test to thread-debug-info-test.cc
