one suggestion is that I think we should try to keep the invariant
that loader_data can't be NULL in ClassLoader::get_package_entry and
avoid adding a NULL check there.

The only call site that needs to be fixed appears to be the one in
systemDictionaryShared. Maybe something like this:

        ClassLoaderData* platform_loader = 
// can be NULL during bootstrap
        if ((platform_loader == NULL ||
             ClassLoader::get_package_entry(pkg_name, platform_loader) 
== NULL) &&
ClassLoaderData::the_null_class_loader_data()) == NULL) {

What do you think?
