RFR: JDK-8212053: A few more missing object equals barriers

 Testing and code analysis have revealed a couple more places where we
need oopDesc::equals() or oopDesc::equals_raw(). Those should really be
the last ones (notwithstanding new code of course):

in compressed oops, we should use equals_raw() because it's only used to
verify that we encoded/decoded the oop correctly a few lines above. It
cannot have been changed yet. In vframe, we need the usual
oopDesc::equals(..) because we may see different copies of the same object.


Builds and runs hotspot/tier1 fine.
