Hello Remi, et. al.,


Can you please approve this patch, it is taken out of ASM's svn repo.
change id 1795,  which addresses the problem described in [1].

Note 1: A couple of @Deprecated annotations and doc comments
have been disabled, because we have a catch-22 that an internal and closed
component depends on these APIs, and the replacement is not available until
we push this patch. A follow up bug [2] has been filed.

Note 2: jprt tested, all core-libs, langtools and nashorn regressions
pass. HotSpot team has verified that it address their issues.

Thank you
