Pack stack map entries on bit level to save space.
Use only the minimum number of bits required to store stack map data.
For example, if native_pc needs 5 bits and dex_pc needs 3 bits, they
will share the first byte of the stack map entry.
The header is changed to store bit offsets of the fields rather than
byte sizes. Offsets also make it easier to access later fields without
calculating sum of all previous sizes.
All of the header fields are byte sized or encoded as ULEB128 instead
of the previous fixed size encoding. This shrinks it by about half.
It saves 3.6 MB from non-debuggable boot.oat (AOSP).
It saves 3.1 MB from debuggable boot.oat (AOSP).
It saves 2.8 MB (of 99.4 MB) from /system/framework/arm/ (GOOG).
It saves 1.0 MB (of 27.8 MB) from /system/framework/oat/arm/ (GOOG).
Field loads from stackmaps seem to get around 10% faster.
(based on the time it takes to load all stackmap entries from boot.oat)
