OptoBreakpoint is very useful for debugging C2 compiler when porting 
some cpu for jdk8u. It is able to `b breakpoint` for breaking at the 
prolog about for example Compile_id = 2. But when fixed several bugs for 
C2, it needs to press `c` times and times again for reaching the proper 

I `grep` Opto related options.  But there is no such one to break at the 
precise Compile_id.  Please teach me if there was :)

So here comes BreakAtCompileId. It is able to break at the precise 
Compile_id which you want to debug.
