RFR (XS): Add necessary .inline.hpp files to fix non-PCH build

Hi Volker,

Bug created: JDK-8004674

Thanks for fixing this. Your patch looks good. Though, I think it's 
unfortunate that we have to add allocation.inline.hpp whenever this 
'new' is used.

Can someone who's an official Reviewer also review this?
