This is a rip-out and manual collapsing of needlessly complex code in
the update rs algorithm.
There are more improvements obvious now in that area (JDK-8071280, JDK-
8162928, JDK-8175554 at least), so I kept this one to the minimum.
The change makes the code a bit faster too due to avoiding repeated
null-checks, region-crossing checks etc. etc.
jprt, tier2+3 testing, some benchmarks
