RFR: 8186789: CDS dump crashes at ConstantPool::resolve_class_constants

Since the function ConstantPool::resolve_class_constants(TRAPS) always 
returns true, maybe it should be changed to a void function?

> If a class fails verification due to missing dependencies at dump time, the constant pool _cache may be NULL. ConstantPool::resolve_class_constants() needs to check for that case. Also moved the function under #if INCLUDE_CDS_JAVA_HEAP, since it is only used when INCLUDE_CDS_JAVA_HEAP is enabled.
