Further testing revealed this bug was hiding another one.
In PhiNode::unique_input(), uncast() could step over the CheckCastPP node that follows an Allocation. If that happens, a new CheckCastPP will be created and will replace the CheckCastPP of the allocation but with a different control and it could cause a safepoint to be in between the allocation and the CheckCastPP and assert failures with "there should be a oop in OopMap instead of a live raw oop at safepoint”.
