Can you give some context here. Adding a null check seems like it will 
avoid the present crash but I'm wondering about what it means to 
encounter a null in this code? Is it reasonable to have a non-null 
Method* yet find a null MethodDescriptor?

Please also update the CR with explanatory information before pushing this.
