Hi Roland, Paul. Thank you for tackling this! We have to jump through quite a few hoops in the implementation of the foreign memory access API in order to leverage the intrinsification of int-based index checks, and even then we are not covering the cases where the numbers are larger than ints. Looking forward to being able to remove those hacks!

Although I'm not a 'Reviewer', I've done a pass over the code and left some inline comments that I hope you find useful.

src/hotspot/share/opto/graphKit.hpp line 109:

Could also use `checked_cast` here (from globalDefinitions.hpp), which does a similar check.

      return intcon(checked_cast<jint>(con));

src/hotspot/share/opto/graphKit.hpp line 111:

> 109:       return intcon((jint) con);
> 110:     }
> 111:     return longcon(con);

This ends up defaulting to longcon for any basic type that is not T_INT. Maybe it's nice to have an assert here?

    assert(bt == T_LONG, "basic type not an int or long");
    return longcon(con);

src/hotspot/share/opto/type.cpp line 1353:

> 1351:     jint int_hi = (jint)hi;
> 1352:     assert(((jlong)int_lo) == lo && ((jlong)int_hi) == hi, "bounds are not ints");

checked_cast could also be used here.

    return TypeInt::make(checked_cast<jint>(lo), checked_cast<jint>(hi), w);

src/java.base/share/classes/java/lang/IndexOutOfBoundsException.java line 83:

For consistency with the class name:

        super("Index out of bounds: " + index);

test/jdk/java/util/Objects/CheckLongIndex.java line 94:

> 94: 

Seems unused?
