Please review this JDK-12 fix for bug JDK-8207779.  The fix changes 
function is_valid_method() into a static function to avoid comparisons 
between 'this' and NULL and to avoid accessing the validating method 
through the Method being validated.

This fix was regression tested by running Mach5 tiers 1 and 2 tests and 
builds on Linux-X64, Windows, Solaris Sparc, and Mac OS X, running tiers 
3-5 tests on Linux-x64, and by running JCK-11 Lang and VM tests on
