Pull request description:

This is part of the [assumeutxo project](https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/projects/11):

Parent PR: #15606
Issue: #15605
Specification: https://github.com/jamesob/assumeutxo-docs/tree/master/proposal

---

In the assumeutxo implementation draft (#15056), once a UTXO snapshot is loaded, a new chainstate object is created after initialization. This means that we have to reclaim some of the cache that we've allocated to the original chainstate (per `dbcache=`) to repurpose for the snapshot chainstate.

Furthermore, it makes sense to have different cache allocations depending on which chainstate is more active. While the snapshot chainstate is working to get to the network tip (and the background validation chainstate is idle), it makes sense that the snapshot chainstate should have the majority of cache allocation. And contrariwise once the snapshot has reached network tip, most of the cache should be given to the background validation chainstate.

This set of changes (detailed in the commit messages) allows us to dynamically resize the various coins caches. None of the functionality introduced here is used at the moment, but will be in the next AU PR (which introduces `ActivateSnapshot`).

`ChainstateManager::MaybeRebalanceCaches()` defines the (somewhat normative) cache allocations between the snapshot and background validation chainstates. I'd be interested in feedback if anyone has thoughts on the proportions I've set there.
