> Jim, Could you please review this change ? TIA.
> Changes:
>     - Withdraw the new top type InlineObject (per design)
>     - Do not encode the new top types in class files as this is noisy and
>       very disruptive and let the static compiler and the dynamic environments
>       inject these types as needed. (since classes compiled with legacy compilers
>       will not encode these top types anyway the VM has to resort to injection,
>       why not resort to injection for everything is the motivation)
>     - Adjust some code that is surprised by super interfaces being empty.
> More background is available in https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8242612
