@MrSimms thanks for working on this.

I expect this to call the existing `hashCodeInvoker` if the type is an inline type.   `hashCodeForType` is the method
handle invoking `java.util.Objects::hashCode`.   The existing `hashCodeInvoker` should be changed to take `Class<?>
type` once javac no longer generates `equals` and `hashCode` method for inline type.

Maybe I should take this patch and make the coordinated changes??

Do you anticipate this VM flag is needed?
