Please review this JDK-12 fix for JDK-8209087. This fix removes
comparisons of 'this' to 'NULL' from the three remaining methods
containing this code. Callers of these methods were looked at to see if
their calling object might be NULL. If so, then checks for NULL were
added to these callers.
JBS Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8209087
The fix was tested by running Mach5 tiers 1 and 2 tests and builds on
Linux-x64, Windows, and Mac OS X, running tiers 3-5 tests on Linux-x64,
and by running JCK-12 Lang and VM tests on Linux-x64.
