I understand that ClassWriter has been significantly changed in ASM 7.0, so ClassWriterExt can't disable CP entries caching (at least not in the way it used to), but removing setCache* calls from the tests changed them and in some cases made them invalid as they don't test that they supposed to. therefore I'd prefer to leave all calls setCache* as-is, change setCache* implementation to throw an exception (similarly to the fix in JDK-8194826 <https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8194826>) and mark all tests which throw this exception w/ '@ignore 8194951' jtreg tag.
ClassWriterExt the MLVM tests have come in previous upgrades too. Has 
there been any discussion Remi or others on ASM to make it easier for 
the JDK to upgrade?
