GEODE-1017: change off-memory from compaction to defragmentation

 Replaced references of compaction with `defragmentation`, to better
 convey the intent behind the operation.

> Replace references to off-heap space compaction with *defragmentation*, to better convey
the intent behind the operation. 
> https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Memory_Management/Memory_Compacting defines compaction:
". . .the process of moving allocated objects together, and leaving empty space together."
 We do not move allocated chunks, so implying we do is misleading. 
> At the very least, all outward facing statistics and any other UI should be renamed to
refer to defragmentation and defragment instead of compaction and compact.
