hi all,

Please review this small workaround for a deadlock in our symbol table, which eventually will be properly fixed by JDK-8209054.

The workaround is not to check for safe point while taking the symbol table lock. We also take the opportunity to more aptly name the lock, by renaming it from SymbolTable_lock to SymbolArena_lock.
