Introduce disposable call-cache.
This patch contains several ideas: (1) Disposable inline method cache (IMC) for race-free inline method cache * Making call-cache (CC) as a RVALUE (GC target object) and allocate new CC on cache miss. * This technique allows race-free access from parallel processing elements like RCU. (2) Introduce per-Class method cache (pCMC) * Instead of fixed-size global method cache (GMC), pCMC allows flexible cache size. * Caching CCs reduces CC allocation and allow sharing CC's fast-path between same call-info (CI) call-sites. (3) Invalidate an inline method cache by invalidating corresponding method entries (MEs) * Instead of using class serials, we set "invalidated" flag for method entry itself to represent cache invalidation. * Compare with using class serials, the impact of method modification (add/overwrite/delete) is small. * Updating class serials invalidate all method caches of the class and sub-classes. * Proposed approach only invalidate the method cache of only one ME. See [Feature #16614] for more details.
