the following two patches:
Add support for mangled value class names in ClassInfo for both javac
and the bytecode API (used for MH spinning).
The support is enabled with these two options:
I also added class reading support to javac - and that's always enabled.
I verified that javap works as expected - since a ClassInfo is just a
string, javap doesn't complain if there's an extra ';' prefix in there,
so things looks good already.
