+ private static final boolean TrustFinalDefaultFields = HotSpotJVMCIRuntime.getBooleanProperty(TrustFinalDefaultFieldsProperty, true);
+ private static final boolean ImplicitStableValues = HotSpotJVMCIRuntime.getBooleanProperty("jvmci.ImplicitStableValues", true);
We should either use the jvmci. prefix or not.
- @Option(help = "", type = OptionType.Debug)
- public static final OptionValue<Boolean> UseProfilingInformation = new OptionValue<>(true);
We are using this flag so we need to keep it.
