[Lilliput/JDK17] Streamline and cleanup GC code

    Description

      We have a bunch of ugly hacks in GC code paths where we do stuff like:
      if (UseCompactObjectHeaders) {
       // fetch object Klass* or size in a safe way...
      } else {
        // fetch object Klass* or size in the traditional way
      }

      This happens in various places in similar ways. I propose to add relevant methods to oopDesc, and make all GC code use those new methods instead.

      This helps streamline and clean up a bunch of GC code.
