most @CallerSensitive methodscall Reflection.getCallerClass(), which
turn out to have problematic performance characteristics when it fails
to inline.

Making @CallerSensitive imply @ForceInline actually works rather well
across benchmarks, but didn't meet with approval from hotspot-compiler
because it's a hack (unlike @ForceInline /s).

Instead, here is a patch to explicitly @ForceInline those methods where
it can plausibly be helping with performance:
