Hi all,

please review the patch which adds new WhiteBox methods needed for 
better testing SegmentedCodeCache:
  - perform allocation in code cache
  - force code cache sweep
  - lock/unlock compilation
  - get a segment id for nmethod.
besides these methods, the patch also adds a method to get all entries 
in code heap.

changes in product code:
  - monitor 'Compilation_lock' was added to implement compilation 
  - align_code_offset function was made a static member of CodeBlob
  - WhiteBox was made a friend of several classes

testing: jprt, new added tests
