Please review this second version of the fix.
This version has 2 new functions (equals() and not_equals()) in the
It replaces the Symbol* == and != comparisons with those 2 function calls.
It has a much smaller changeset than the first version.
Someone may by mistake introduce a new line of (Symbol* == Symbol*).
We will mitigate this by enhancing our internal static analysis tool to
above code in the future.
JPRT (almost done)
Will do more perf testing after JPRT
