Summary: Use resource allocated hashtable for local variable table checking

I was never able to reproduce this after considerable time trying. I 
also never found anything wrong with the code that would cause an extra 
or incorrect os::free call.  This change checks LVT entries using the 
existing ResourceHashtable rather than a ad-hoc extra hashtable 
definition in classFileParser.cpp.  So this change removes the os::free 
call.  I think whatever caused the original bug will crash somewhere 
else now, and hopefully be easier to find.

Tested with jck9, jck1.4 runThese tests, nsk and jtreg tests, and added
