JDK-8276205 fixed a bug that prevents concurrent code cache iteration, without holding CodeCache_lock. That causes register_nmethod() calls can go through during concurrent code cache iteration.

This is no a problem for new nmethod, cause it is *not* in cache cache snapshot for concurrent code cache iteration, but *nmethod patching* is. We can not allow *nmethod patching* during concurrent code cache iteration, should block it until iteration is completed.
