You seem to have restored the assert in the nmethod-table ([0248f1e](https://github.com/openjdk/jdk/commit/0248f1e4cd6a8311f0532c637a31bd71c9041451)), but surely the assert `ShenandoahCodeRoots::unregister_nmethod` can also be called at safepoint without `CodeCache_lock` held?

Why further CR, though? I think current code is guaranteed to fail that new assert during STW unloading? If so, we need to keep `assert_locked_or_safepoint` intact.
