Also, MacroAssembler code was added to save/restore the result of the upcall around the call on the back-edge, which was previously missing. Since the new code allocates a handle block as well, I've added handling for those oops to frame & OptimizedUpcallBlob.

Looks good.

It makes sense to assert that `frame` refers to optimized entry frame (`assert(frame->is_optimized_entry_frame(), "wrong frame");`.

If you declare `verify_frame_info` as returning a `bool` (and just put a `return true;` at the end of `JavaThread::verify_frame_info()`), you can call it as:

assert(verify_frame_info(), "unexpected frame info");
