The logic around build_method_data doesn't look right to me. Won't it return false if there is already a valid MDO which would cause us to incorrectly bailout? Maybe build_method_data should become ensure_method_data and return true if the method has a real MDO, creating it if necessary.
Shouldn't this assert:
+ assert(md != NULL, "Sanity");
be stronger? It seems like it should be checking that it's not an empty method data too since those won't have a real object behind them. Maybe C1 should be using a new method like method_data_or_null() so that it never sees empty method datas.
