Is it going to have a significant impact of the performance of the hashtable or is it negligeable?

Hi Fred,

Thanks for the review. I've added code to calculate the stats of the hashtable. The max number of entries per bucket is no more than 3, so I think the distribution is acceptable.

Also, the hash function already shifts down by `LogBytesPerWord`, so it will get rid of the lower 3 zero bits.

My stats code is in https://github.com/iklam/valhalla/commits/heap-shared-seen-obj-table-stats, but it's not part of this PR. I will clean it up and integrate into jdk/jdk.

Thanks @fparain and @mlchung for the review.
