Yup. Amusingly, this filter is implemented in shared C1 [1] and C2 [2] code, where the performance
does matter, and it is not hooked up to the flag :) It might indeed make little sense to perform
this filtering in arch-specific interpreter barriers.

I think you want to remove the comments like:

 273   // Does store cross heap regions?
 274   // It does if the two addresses specify different grain addresses.

 222   // Crosses regions, storing NULL?
