I would like review of this change that includes three fixes:

1) Let Dcmd Compiler.codelist only print alive-nmethods. We ran into 
crashes when listing zombies and unloaded too. Alive nmethods includes 
not-entrants so it still gives a pretty good idea about whats in the 
code cache and what has been used recently.

2) Take CompileQueue lock when printing queue. It is not enough to be at 
a safepoint - the compiler threads may still mutate the list causing 

3) Relax the parsing of long hex-numbers in the test of codelist. High 
addresses (sparc) casues NumberFormatExceptions.
