RFR: 8276205: Shenandoah: CodeCache_lock should always be held for initializing code cache iteration

There are few bugs in current implementation:
1) No CodeCache_lock is held when initialize code cache iterator at safepoints. This is a problem for concurrent GC, since it can initialize a concurrent code cache iterator while holding CodeCache_lock without safepoint check.

2) Does not notify waiters upon completion of iteration at safepoints

3) Unnecessary held CodeCache_lock during concurrent code cache iteration.
