> JVMCI records metadata references in the metadata section, so scanning of referenced metadata will work properly but it never actually creates a relocation in code or constants section. This means the disassembly is a little less readable than it might be.  This adds the creation of the appropriate relocation.  Tested by inspection of assembly printing on sparc and x86.
