Request for reviews (S): 6877254: Server vm crashes with "no branches off of store slice" when run with CMS and UseSuperWord (default)

I have concerns about StoreCMNode::Ideal(aidx) implementation.

The result of memory_at() is never the same mergemem node.
I either mergemem->base_memory() or mergemem->in(aidx)
so your check will be always true.

Also mergemem nodes could be chained when the result of memory_at()
is also mergemem.

You can look on methods in memnode.cpp which search through
mergemem for stores: step_through_mergemem(), find_previous_store().
