RFR: 8240658: Code completion not working for lambdas in method invocations that require type inference [v3]

> When a method invocation requires type inference, and the user is in the process of typing of a (block) lambda that is
> a parameter to the method invocation, javac may not, in some cases, perform the type inference, which then may lead to
> non working code completion in JShell (and possibly other tools).  For example (in JShell):
> Arrays.stream(new Integer[]{1}).forEach(v -> { System.err.println(v.
> and press <tab> - this leads to no proposals currently, as the type of "v" is not inferred.
> The idea of the proposed patch is to improve the recovery in cases significant for cases where the text is being typed,
> and allow type inference in these cases. The type of "v" is then inferred, and the code completion works.
