Please review the following for removing Method::_method_data when only
supporting C1 (or more specifically, when not supporting C2 or JVMCI).
This will help reduce dynamic footprint usage for the minimal VM.
As part of this fix, ProfileInterperter is forced to false unless C2 or
JVMCI is supported. This was mainly done to avoid crashes if it is
turned on and Method::_method_data has been excluded, but also because
it is not useful except to C2 or JVMCI.
Test with JPRT -testset hotspot.
