RFR: 8273000: Remove WeakReference-based class initialisation barrier implementation [v2]

> Get rid of WeakReference-based logic in DirectMethodHandle::checkInitialized() and reimplement it with `Unsafe::ensureClassInitialized()`/`shouldBeInitialized()`. 
> The key observation is that `Unsafe::ensureClassInitialized()` does not block the initializing thread. 
> Also, removed `Unsafe::shouldBeInitialized()` in `DMH::shouldBeInitialized(MemberName)` to save on calling into the VM.
> `Unsafe::ensureClassInitialized()` already has a fast-path check which checks whether the class is fully initialized or not.
> Testing: tier1 - tier6
