Anonymous class

  I have a question of anonymous class. We know the anonymous class with a
host_klass, and the flag is set when the InstanceKlass is created after the
class parsed. In case of a regular java class file, the flag will be set
correctly but for the case it is not set:
  SystemDictionary::parse_stream or resolve_from_stream, which is called
from JVM_DefineClassWithSource or jni_defineClass. The stack trace like:

The class name is$3, and it is an
anonymous class.
This is an example using Guava. I also can reproduce with jdk13.

The field after parsing:

 _nonstatic_oop_map_size = 1,
  _is_marked_dependent = false,
  _has_unloaded_dependent = false,
  _misc_flags = 38,      ////// <------------ not set for anonymous
  _minor_version = 0,
  _major_version = 50,
  _init_thread = 0x0,
  _vtable_len = 8,
  _itable_len = 8,

  This path is from a custom loader defining a anonymous class, does not
set anonymous correctly for the flag. Is this a bug? If in java land,
supply a host as parameter,  it can be set correctly in VM part. Should I
file a bug for it?
