I'd like to sponsor this bug fix provided by Tomáš Hůrka to remove a new
and dup left behind in generated accessor methods after moving these to
use appropriate valueOf methods for boxing primitive returns.
This appears to have a very limited effect to peak performance in
HotSpot (interpreter and C1 level code seem to hurt a bit), but should
be fixed for correctness.
