Please review the following enhancement to consolidate signature parsing 
code in Hotspot sources.  This change removes duplicate blocks of code 
that parse field or method signatures, provides a new Signature class to 
support basic signature queries on Symbol operands and enhances the 
SignatureStream class to parse field signatures in addition to methods.
