IMPALA-5039: Fix variability in parquet dictionary filtering test

The tests for dictionary filtering look at how many row groups are processed and
how many are filtered by matching text in the profile. However, the number of row
groups processed and filtered by any individual fragment depends on how the work
is split and how many impalads are running. This causes variability in the test

To fix this, the test needs a way to aggregate the results across fragments.
This fix introduces the following syntax for specifying these aggregates:
aggregate(function_name, field_name): expected_value
This searches the runtime profile for lines that contain 'field_name: number'.
It skips the averaged fragment, as this is derived from all the other fragments.

Currently, only SUM is implemented, and the expected_value is required to be
an integer. It should be easy to implement other interesting functions like
COUNT and MIN/MAX. It would also be possible to extend it to floats.

Switching the dictionary filtering tests over to this new syntax eliminates the
variability in the tests.
