Feature #9441: [PATCH] method.h: save 8 bytes in rb_method_definition_t on x86-64
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/9441

* Author: Eric Wong
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Category: core
* Target version: current: 2.2.0
----------------------------------------
Rearranging the struct to have two 32-bit values next to each other
allows the struct to be one word smaller on 64-bit.

This lowers overall memory use as we have many methods out-of-the box:

$ /usr/bin/time ./ruby -e exit
0.06user 0.00system 0:00.07elapsed 98%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 7420maxresident)k
