Question on "JEP: JVMCI based JIT Compiler pre-compiled as shared library"

I have a question related to the JEP draft "JVMCI based JIT Compiler
pre-compiled as shared library". Back in April/May "JDK-8220623:
[JVMCI] Update JVMCI to support JVMCI based Compiler compiled into
shared library", which was a pretty huge change, has been pushed to

I wonder how much of the envisioned JEP functionality has already been
delivered by change "JDK-8220623" and what is still missing in order
to fully support pre-compiled JIT compilers as a shared library. Has
most of the work already been done by "JDK-8220623"? I don't see any
more sub-tasks on JEP JDK-8223220 and neither do I see any progress on
that JEP. From what I saw, it even hasn't been proposed and/or
discussed on an OpenJDK mailing list yet.

Thank you and best regards,
