This is a very small fix that adds ResourceMarks to
MethodData::clean_method_data() (and two similar functions nearby).
Basically an iteration over all classes in all methods in all classes
was occurring in one ResourceMark during a full gc, so we occasionally
ran out of malloc space.
Once again, x86 builds running on Win64 are the "canary in the coal
mine" for these kinds of temp. memory leaks, so it's a great test case
even if not a very realistic one!
Thanks for looking,
