distinguish between VM anonymous classes and ordinary classes. In some
very specific circumstances (VM anonymous class declared in one of
predefined core packages), it can consider a member of VM anonymous
class as statically invocable and symbolically reference it from
generated bytecode. It's wrong because such class can't be looked up by
name and the attempt to run such code ends up with NoClassDefFoundError.
The fix is to disable static invocation for members of VM anonymous classes.
Testing: regression test.
