8031203: remove SafepointPollOffset

SafepointPollOffset is only used in C1 because of JDK-4986249 which was never reproducible with C2. 

This seems to be an architecture anomaly and confined to certain chip versions. An old comment of JDK-4986249 mentions "some P4's". Running on any newer chips doesn't show that behavior. I suggest to remove that option.

CCC request was filed and approved.
