The work that frame::adjust_unextended_sp() does is DEBUG_ONLY, but the 
compiler cannot completely eliminate the code because of the virtual 
call to is_compiled() that could have side-effects. We can fix the 
problem by wrapping the whole thing in #ifdef ASSERT.

This change reduces the size of libjvm.so by almost 2K, and the size of 
frame::sender() by 8%.
