RFR 8171132: Improve class reading of invalid or out-of-range ConstantValue attributes

As discussed in:

javac does not currently check for invalid or out-of-range ConstantValue

The proposed change is to emit an error for class files where a
ConstantValue attribute disagrees with the field type, and to narrow any
out-of-range values for bool, short, byte or char constant fields to within
the expected range.

Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8171132
