Request for tracking down C1 optimizations: handwritten cartesian product similar to flatmap/map performance!

Hi Aggelos,

Escape Analysis may not help you because main time goes to the loop 
which only reads from arrays and does math. There is no allocations in 
the loop. If stream version produces the same loop shape, the 
performance will be the same. We have -XX:+TraceLoopOpts flag but it is 
available only in debug version of JVM.
