Please review this small fix for throwing OutOfMermoryError with the 
correct cause string when failing to allocate a Klass.

The code incorrectly sets the cause string to "Compressed class space" 
if the allocation type is ClassType even if the VM is configured to not 
use a separate compressed class space.

The fix adds a helper function to determine if a MetadataType would be 
allocated in the compressed class space or not and uses that to figure 
out what string to send and which OOME to throw.
