RFR(S): 8142329: [JVMCI] pass Handle by value

Dear Roland,

Coleen recently changes a bunch of handle values to references (see
https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8140274). Perhaps the comment in
handles.hpp should be updated to reflect the efficiency goal of Coleen's
recent change. Your change has both constantPoolHandles and methodHandles,
so it would be nice to not go backwards.
