[COFF] Avoid allocating temporary vectors during ICF

Heap profiling with ETW shows that LLD performs 4,053,721 heap
allocations over its lifetime, and ~800,000 of them come from
assocEquals. These vectors are created just to do a comparison, so fuse
the comparison into the loop and avoid the allocation.

ICF is overall a small portion of the time spent linking, and I did not
measure overall throughput improvements from this change above the noise
threshold. However, these show up in the heap profiler, and the work is
done, so we might as well land it if the code is clear enough.
