I stand corrected, still I think it is a mistake to remove it, because
the C++ alternative to htab_t only supports a subset of uses of the older
C htab_t, e.g. it can't cope with GC.  So FTTB some of the hash tables
in the newly added code (most recently e.g. ubsan) need to use the C
htab_t and could make use of the traversal iterator infrastructure.
