8205118: CodeStrings::copy() assertion caused by -XX:+VerifyOops -XX:+PrintStubCode

My recent patch to re-enable the printing of code comments in
PrintStubCode revealed a latent bug in CodeStrings::copy().
VerifyOops uses CodeStrings to hold its assertion strings, and these
are distinguished from code comments by an offset of -1.  (Presumably
to make sure they're not interpreted as code comments by the
disassembler.)  Unfortunately, CodeStrings::copy() triggers an
assertion failure when it sees any of the assertion strings.

The best fix, IMO, is to correct CodeStrings::copy(): it shouldn't
fail whatever the code strings are.
