Fastpath for new String(bytes..) and String#getBytes(..) for ASCII + ISO-8859-1

I would be very hesitated to add methods with specific encoding names, 
even these encodings are
VERY important, such as ASCII and ISO8859. Hack a fast path in the 
implementation to boost the
performance for some important encodings is something we want to do, but 
add specific methods
into the API is totally different thing.
