This looks good.  Can you change the type hierarchy in type.hpp too?

class   TypePtr;
class     TypeRawPtr;
class     TypeOopPtr;
class       TypeInstPtr;
class       TypeAryPtr;
class       TypeKlassPtr;
class     TypeMetadataPtr;

TypeOopPtr::filter() had code to handle TypeKlassPtr types. When TypeKlassPtr was moved under TypePtr, this code wasn’t moved. I think it should have been and that could explain the assert.
