Please review this change that adds support for blocking compiles in the 
whitebox API. This enables simpler less time consuming tests.

* -XX:-BackgroundCompilation is a global flag and can be time consuming
* Blocking compiles removes the need for waiting on the compile queue to 
* Compiles put in the queue may be evicted if the queue grows to big - 
causing indeterminism in the test
* Less VM-flags allows for more tests in the same VM

Posting a separate RFR for test fix that uses this change. They will be 
pushed at the same time.
