[libFuzzer] Fix value-profile-load test.

The behavior of the CrossOver mutator has changed with
bb54bcf84970c04c9748004f3a4cf59b0c1832a7. This seems to affect the
value-profile-load test on Darwin. This patch provides a wider margin for
determining success of the value-profile-load test, by testing the targeted
functionality (i.e., GEP index value profile) more directly and faster. To this
end, LoadTest.cpp now uses a narrower condition (Size != 8) for initial pruning
of inputs, effectively preventing libFuzzer from generating inputs longer than
necessary and spending time on mutating such long inputs in the corpus - a
functionality not meant to be tested by this specific test.

Previously, on x86/Linux, it required 6,597,751 execs with -use_value_profile=1
and 19,605,575 execs with -use_value_profile=0 to hit the crash. With this
patch, the test passes with 174,493 execs, providing a wider margin from the
given trials of 10,000,000. Note that, without the value profile (i.e.,
-use_value_profile=0), the test wouldn't pass as it still requires 19,605,575
execs to hit the crash.
