Kozlov), named SafePointScalarMergeNode, to represent a set of SafePointScalarObjectNode; 2) Each scalar replaceable input participating in a merge will get a SafePointScalarObjectNode like if it weren't part of a merge. 3) Add a new Class to support the rematerialization of SR objects that are part of a merge; 4) Patch HotSpot to be able to serialize and deserialize debug information related to allocation merges; 5) Patch C2 to generate unique types for SR objects participating in some allocation merges.

The new pass over deserialized debug info would adapt `ScopeDesc::objects()` (initialized by `decode_object_values(obj_decode_offset)` and accesses through `chunk->at(0)->scope()->objects()`) and produce 2 lists:
  * new list of objects which enumerates all scalarized instances which needs to be rematerialized;
  * complete set of objects referenced in the current scope (the purpose `chunk->at(0)->scope()->objects()` serves now).

It should be performed before `rematerialize_objects`.

By preprocessing I mean all the conditional checks before it is attempted to reallocate an `ObjectValue`. By the end of the new pass, it should be enough to just iterate over the new list of scalarized instances in `Deoptimization::realloc_objects`. And after `Deoptimization::realloc_objects` and `Deoptimization::reassign_fields` are over, debug info should be ready to go.
