> In other words, a reachable (marked) MutableCallSite references an unreachable DirectMethodHandle. That reference would subsequently become dangling and lead to crashes if accessed.
> I narrowed it down to the access in Dependencies::DepStream::recorded_oop_at(int i) which is done as 'strong', which means that it would return the reference even if it is unreachable, e.g. during concurrent class-unloading. This resurrection of the unreachable DMH is potentially fatal: eventually the reference will become dangling (after GC) and lead to crashes when accessed. I believe that access should be 'phantom' instead which causes GCs like Shenandoah and ZGC to return NULL when encountering unreachable objects.
