Is there any possibility of the JVMCI API classes being released as a
Maven artifact? It would allow development of software which can
optionally consume JVMCI without requiring a JVMCI JDK for building.

> The GR-13902 change introduced new API for implementing -Dgraal.CompileGraalWithC1Only=true without requiring a Java up-call from the VM when scheduling a method for compilation. This fixes a number of subtle bugs and unexpected VM behavior (see https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8219403). As a result of the API change, you need to update Graal to commit b3ec4830e02 <https://github.com/oracle/graal/commit/b3ec4830e0295561bde16740b35efd0bbc4cfccf> or later when using this JVMCI release.
