[MVT] ASM branch for the MVT

I've just pushed the support of COMPUTE_FRAMES, so the core of ASM (the package org.objectweb.asm) should now fully work with the MVT value types.

It was painful, expected but still painful, ASM had the assumption at several places that the internal name is a subset of the descriptor, so it can extract the internal name just by doing a substring on a method/field descriptor.

For real value types (post MVT), as i already said, i would prefer the internal name of a Q type to be the Q type itself with no semicolon in front, (so the subset assumption will still hold).
