Hi Vicente,

All of the javadoc comment reformatting makes it nearly impossible to 
see the actual substantive changes :(

ASM 7 also supports the Nestmate attributes and I was trying to see 
how/where that appeared but its somewhat obscure. Oh well.

Is it that case that the code the uses the ASM library, like the JFR 
code and jlink code, and the tests, doesn't actually _have to_ change to 
specifying Opcodes.ASM7 unless they plan on using ASM7 features? If so 
then you could split out the actual update of ASM from the updates to 
the users of ASM (some of which may be quite fine with ASM5).
