Hi Vladimir,

thanks for the review!

Right, somehow I got confused because the backport issue was created explicitly. Sorry for that.

Here is the correct information (I leave the email subject for history):

6675699: need comprehensive fix for unconstrained ConvI2L with narrowed type

> parse2.cpp  I noticed that JDK9 change remove -1 from "num_cases-1". Was it intentional?

Yes, this is intended because the JDK 9 change uses Compile::conv_I2X_index() which already subtracts 1 from ikeytype->_hi:

4019   if (sizetype != NULL) index_max = sizetype->_hi - 1;

JDK 8u change uses C->constrained_convI2L() which does not change the ikeytype->_hi.

> graphKit.cpp fast_size_limit is used in jdk9 but not in 8u. Why?

Thanks for pointing that out. The JDK 8u fix should use 'fast_size_limit' as upper bound as well because it's more accurate than 'max_array_length'.
