Hi Tobias,

Thanks for the review.

The call to ValueBootstrapMethods::isSubstitutable() needs to be
resolved and for that the code explicitly piggy backs on static call

    CallStaticJavaNode *call = new CallStaticJavaNode(C, TypeFunc::make(subst_method), SharedRuntime::get_resolve_static_call_stub(), subst_method, bci());

So, no need to change anything for virtual calls.

Here is a new webrev with the change you suggested in sharedRuntime.cpp
and some comments:
