> Can I please get reviews for this PR? 
> The most common and frequent use of NonEscaping Phis merging object allocations is for debugging information. The two graphs below show numbers for Renaissance and DaCapo benchmarks - similar results are obtained for all other applications that I tested.
> With what frequency does each IR node type occurs as an allocation merge user? I.e., if the same node type uses a Phi N times the counter is incremented by N:

> This PR adds support scalar replacing allocations participating in merges that are used as debug information OR as a base for field loads. I plan to create subsequent PRs to enable scalar replacement of merges used by other node types (CmpP is next on the list) subsequently.
> The approach I used for _rematerialization_ is pretty straightforward. 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.
> The approach I used for _enabling the scalar replacement of some of the inputs of the allocation merge_ is also pretty straight forward: call `MemNode::split_through_phi` to, well, split AddP->Load* through the merge which will render the Phi useless.
> I tested this with JTREG tests tier 1-4 (Windows, Linux, and Mac) and didn't see regression. I also tested with several applications and didn't see any failure. I also ran tests with "-ea -esa -Xbatch -Xcomp -XX:+UnlockExperimentalVMOptions -XX:-TieredCompilation -server -XX:+IgnoreUnrecognizedVMOptions -XX:+UnlockDiagnosticVMOptions -XX:+StressLCM -XX:+StressGCM -XX:+StressCCP" and didn't observe any related failures.

  Address PR feeedback 1: make ObjectMergeValue subclass of ObjectValue & create new IR class to represent scalarized merges.
