Feature #16289: Reduce duplicated warnings for the change of Ruby 3 keyword arguments

## Problem

Currently, the interpreter emits 200 lines of warnings against the following program.

```ruby
def foo(**opt); end
100.times { foo({kw:1}) }
```

```
$ ./miniruby -e 'def foo(**opt); end; 100.times { foo({kw:1}) }'
-e:1: warning: The last argument is used as the keyword parameter
-e:1: warning: for `foo' defined here
-e:1: warning: The last argument is used as the keyword parameter
-e:1: warning: for `foo' defined here
-e:1: warning: The last argument is used as the keyword parameter
-e:1: warning: for `foo' defined here
...
```

In theory, the warnings are not harmful because they don't stop or interfere the execution.  But in practice, I'm afraid if they are annoying because they flush all console logs away.
I think that the warning is not needed if the call is already warned.


## Proposal

How about limiting the count of warnings to at most once for each pair of caller and callee?

I've created [a pull request](https://github.com/ruby/ruby/pull/2458).  It records all pairs of caller position and callee iseq when emitting a warning, and suppress the warning if the same pair of caller and callee is already warned.

What do you think?
