Please review this JDK-10 change to fix an assertion involving
ClassLoader::_num_entries. The assertion gets triggered when running
the exploded build. ClassLoader::_num_entries is only used by CDS,
which is not supported for exploded builds. So, assertions involving
_num_entries should check for a normal build before doing their check
Note that a new RFE will be filed shortly requesting a re-design of the
confusing boot classpath entries code as requested in one of the
comments in this JBS bug.

The change was tested with the JCK Lang and VM tests, the JTreg hotspot,
java/io, java/lang, java/util, and other tests. The test were run with
both the normal and exploded builds.
