[master] RFR: Trim identity-hashcode to 25bit [v2]

> I'd like to trim the identity hashcode to 25 bits to make room in the upper 32bits for the compressed class-pointer.
> This could in theory regress performance on workloads that make heavy use of i-hashes, but I could not show this in practice (by specjvm workloads like compiler which uses lots of ihashes).
> Next step would be to move the Klass* into the upper 32bit part. (If you look closely, this would be the exact header layout of 32bit JVMs.) And then get rid of the dedicated Klass* field. :-D Eventually I'd make ihash-bits and klass* bits configurable to trade one for the other.
> Testing:
>  - [x] some manual benchmarks
>  - [x] tier1
>  - [ ] tier2
