Two comments:

Typo: s/polimorphic/polymorphic/

The count field of a call site is inclusive of the counts on the rows.  Therefore, I think you should decrement the main count by the row count, rather than zero it out.

Correlated profile numbers is not good design however.  We should (not in this bug) change InterpreterMacroAssembler::profile_virtual_call to increment the main count only if a row count is not incremented.  That way, the total count of the call site will be the sum of all counts (which then are disjoint).  And the main count becomes a "default" or "misc" count.  Does this make sense to you?
