Question about exceptions

The Graal compiler adds the logic for dispatching an exception based on 
its type into the compiled code. The makeExceptionDispatch method 
creates a subgraph that contains this logic for a list of exception 
handlers. In order to reduce code size, we only compile exception 
handlers that have been executed at least once.
