RFR(S): fix System.arraycopy() C2 intrinsics with arrays of value types

I've rerun tests and found a number of issues. Here is a new webrev:


and the diff on top of the previous webrev:


1) TestArrays had no test for the transformation of a small clone() to a
series of loads/stores

2) In GraphKit, the array allocation code doesn't hook slices for all
fields of a flatten array. That prevents some optimizations.

3) ValueTypeNode::make_from_oop() can see a null oop (if it loads a non
flattened value field from an object that was just allocated). There's
no way to query the value klass from the oop then so I changed
ValueTypeNode::make_from_oop() so it takes the ciValueKlass* as

4) Parse::return_current() has code that, if value is not null,
allocates a new value, updating control, memory and io in the
process. But the update to control/memory/io is ignored because the code
that propagates the new control/memory/io is before:

   SafePointNode* exit_return = _exits.map();
   exit_return->in( TypeFunc::Control  )->add_req( control() );
   exit_return->in( TypeFunc::I_O      )->add_req( i_o    () );
   Node *mem = exit_return->in( TypeFunc::Memory   );

5) I also fixed a few smaller issues in the array copy code.
