inspecting the code cache

PrintCompilation will tell you if it's no longer being used.  The "mande not entrant" messages mean that we will no longer call that method though it's possible that there are still existing activations.  The "made zombie" message means that there are no activations.  It will hang around for a little while in the code cache after that because the cleanup is asynchronous but no one will be using it anymore.
