Hi Calvin,

- src/share/vm/interpreter/linkResolver.cpp
   Looks good, no comments.

- test/runtime/lambda-features/TestConcreteClassWithAbstractMethod.java
   Looks good.  Please update the comments that contain the pseudo Java 
code describing
   the test's purpose.  The comments need to reflect that the callsite 
to the method of interest, "m()",
   actually occurs within p1.T3's "test()" method.

Thank you,
