In some situations VM fails to dump compiler replay file (produces empty 
replay_pid%p.log). The reason is that ciEnv::dump_replay_data tries to 
do thread state transition to VM unconditionally and acquire 
Compile_lock. It doesn't always work in context of VM error reporter.

The fix is to provide new method specifically for VM error reporter 
(ciEnv::dump_replay_data_unsafe) which doesn't perform aforementioned 

Testing: manual (checked that a valid dump is produced for a crash 
during safepointing).


Best regards,
Vladimir Ivanov
