[erlang-patches] Optimize handling of local fun variables in v3_kernel

Hi,

This branch removes the so-called "reverse etha-conversion" from v3_kernel and
replaces it by a proper call to the make_fun internal BIF without the need of a
redundant lambda function every time the local fun variable is referenced.

There may be some test suites related to this in lib/compiler/test/
but I couldn't
find one; feel free to point me to them if any.

    https://github.com/nox/otp/compare/rm-reverse-eta-conversion.patch

    git fetch https://github.com/nox/otp/ rm-reverse-eta-conversion

Regards,
