Looks good to me, added some minor comments.

src/hotspot/share/c1/c1_LIRGenerator.cpp line 1605:

Unused.

src/hotspot/share/c1/c1_LIRGenerator.cpp line 1611:

Wrong indentation.

src/hotspot/share/c1/c1_LIRGenerator.cpp line 1598:

There is quite some code duplication here with access_flattened_array, can we factor it out?
