Remi, John, thanks for review!

Updated webrev:

This time I did additional testing (COMPILE_THRESHOLD > 0) and spotted a 
problem with MethodHandle.copyWith(): a MethodHandle can inherit 
customized LambdaForm this way. I could have added 
LambdaForm::uncustomize() call in evey Species_*::copyWith() method, but 
I decided to add it into MethodHandle constructor. Let me know if you 
think it's too intrusive.

Also, I made DirectMethodHandles a special-case, since I don't see any 
benefit in customizing them.

Best regards,
Vladimir Ivanov

It shouldn't use "+=1" to increment; it should load the old counter value, test it, increment it (in a local), and then store the updated value.  That is also one possible place to deal with jumbo CUSTOMIZE_THRESHOLD values.
