ILW=Crash, two tests, none = HLH => P2

Evaluation: 'CodeCache::heap_available' assumes that with '-XX:TieredStopAtLevel=0' we only use the interpreter. This is wrong because we still generate compiled forms of method handle intrinsics (see 'SystemDictionary::find_method_handle_intrinsic'). We therefore need to create the non-profiled code heap.
