I'm about to push the JDK changes to hsx/hotspot-main/jdk.  To have some testing coverage I added a test case and I'd like to have at least one review of that:

One thing that occurred to me is that reading of the target field within the JVM must be done as if it were volatile, since we don't actually know what type of call site we're reading from.  You could put a check in CallSite::target but I think you just always read it as volatile.  I suspect the invokedynamic call site assembly also needs to do any required barriers.
