I was trying to find some usage examples in the VM code, but there seems no usage of CompressedStream (except the sa agent java code). Do you have any pointer?

Right; you started with the comments here:

Detailed definitions for UNSIGNED5 and related codings are in the pack200 spec:

There is also a more focused description here in the Java source code:

Then we have 108: final static Coding UNSIGNED5 = Coding.of(5,64);

To search for compressed stream use in HotSpot, look for subtypes of either the read or write version.
  grep -n CompressedReadStream $(hg loc -I src)
  grep -n CompressedWriteStream $(hg loc -I src)

Then look at DebugInfoReadStream and CompressedLineNumberReadStream, and the writer versions.  There's a lot of compressed metadata in the code cache, and interpreter oop maps use it.  It is not used in metadata, yet.
