RFR: 8064846: Lazy-init thread safety problems in core reflection

Hi Martin,

I dont know if you saw https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8064517 (a
followup to your fix for final fields). It would be best to merge those
fixes, what do you think?

Otherwise I think that making all lazily initialized fields volatile is not
necessary. Since you have made the Type implementations
unsafe-publication-tolerable (by making their fields final), the only
fields that need to be volatile are those that are used to lazily publish

Am I right?

Regards, Peter
