This is a chunk of EG cleanup work, consisting of JDK code changes only.

We will want to put in a fast-path for this in the JVM, later.

More changes in the pipeline:

 - JDK only: 7012650 implement JSR 292 EG adjustments through January 2010

 - JVM & JDK: 7012648 move JSR 292 to package java.lang.invoke and adjust names

The rename change will require a phased introduction of JVM changes (to adjust hard-coded dependencies), followed by JDK changes.
