// The CodeCache implements the code cache for various pieces of generated
// code, e.g., compiled java methods, runtime stubs, transition frames, etc.
// The entries in the CodeCache are all CodeBlob's.

// Implementation:
//   - Each CodeBlob occupies one chunk of memory.
//   - Like the offset table in oldspace the zone has at table for
//     locating a method given a addess of an instruction.
