It consists basically in: 1) Extend SafePointScalarObjectNode to represent multiple SR objects; 2) Add a new Class to support rematerialization of SR objects part of merges; 3) Patch HotSpot to be able to serialize and deserialize debug information related to allocation merges; 4) Patch C2 to generate unique types for SR objects participating in some allocation merges.

src/hotspot/share/opto/escape.cpp line 3734:

I decided to do the split here so that Phase 1 of `split_unique_types` could assign a new instance type for the new loads created by `split_through_phi`. However, I'm considering doing the split at the end of `compute_escape` instead of here to keep all the code that does split close together.
