There's a safepoint after we remove the task before it becomes attached 
to the compile thread in CompileTaskWrapper, when we release the 
MethodCompileQueue_lock and purge_stale_tasks() could release and 
reaquire this lock.   Unfortunately the fix is ugly for this small window.

Thank you for the code review!
