Fixed 7048030: is_scavengable changes causing compiler to embed more constants
This is the cause of 7047300 problem to appear. The fix for 7041789 corrected
the meaning of is_scavengable to really mean what it says. Unfortunately there
were some places that were really using it as a proxy for !is_perm. In
particular in ciObject::can_be_constant and should_be_constant we will now embed
constants that we didn't used as long as they are in tenured. The code should
be changed from !is_scavengable to is_perm.
Verified with failing test from 7047300.
