Hi Leonid,

Looks fine. Please also add this bug id to @bug in

Also external_name might tries to calculate hash_code if it was not “pre-calculated” during class verification. See JDK-8197442 <https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8197442> [Graal] runtime/Metaspace/DefineClass.java crashes with "biases should not be seen by VM thread here"
> The suggested fix is to  print address of corresponding InstanceKlass instead of hashcode. It allows to identify anonymous classes and allows to use external_name at any time. The hashcode for java_mirror is still pre-calculated in verifier.cpp since ik->java_mirror()->identity_hash()  still might be used during safepoint. As a regression test I updated one of tests which redefine classes and easily reproduce problem when executed with full logging enabled.
