Hi Vladimir,
in Invokers.java, I think that checkCustomized should take an Object and 
not a MethodHandle
exactly like getCallSiteTarget takes an Object and not a CallSite.

in MethodHandle.java, customizationCount is declared as a byte and there 
is no check that
the CUSTOMIZE_THRESHOLD is not greater than 127.
