[drlvm] performance improvement for String class

         Key: HARMONY-647
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-647
     Project: Harmony
        Type: Improvement

  Components: VM  
    Reporter: Vladimir Strigun
    Priority: Minor

I'd like to suggest performance improvement for String class. Attached patch is very simple
and covers the following issues:
- Additional check in String.equals(). It returns true in case if we compare the same strings.

- Deleted temporary variable sum in String.hashCode() 
- Added workaround for charset ISO-8859-1 in String.getBytes() to avoid usage of java.nio

I've execute DaCapo benchmark with the fix gives about 7% boost for Dacapo:fop bench and don't
degradate on other benchmarks. Values are in milliseconds:
Build 	        Dacapo:fop Dacapo:hsqldb Dacapo:xalan Dacapo:chart
drlvm-original  1287.076   12706.837     1933.424     16283.142
drlvm-fixed 	1186.912   12471.263     1914.366     15961.693
