The former took a small performance hit in JDK 9, and the latter improved greatly in the same release.
> Extending the `EncodeIsoArray` intrinsics on other platforms should be possible, but I'm unfamiliar with the macro assembler in general and unlike the x86 intrinsic they don't use a simple vectorized mask to implement the latin-1 check. For example aarch64 seem to filter out the low bytes and then check if there's any bits set in the high bytes. Clever, but very different to the 0xFF80 2-byte mask that an ASCII test wants.
x86 part of changes look good.
