Summary: remove bcx and mdx handling.  We no longer have to convert 
bytecode pointers or method data pointers to indices for GC since 
Metadata aren't moved.

Tested with nsk.quick.testlist, jck tests, JPRT.

Most of this is renaming bcx to bcp and mdx to mdp.  The content changes 
are in frame.cpp.  StefanK implemented 90% of these changes.
