Please review:

bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8087223

According to JVMS-8:

When invoke a method with resolved to an interface method, or invoke a 
interface method with resolved to an instance method,  ICCE should be 
thrown. The case usually happens when using tools like asmtools or 
jdk.internal.org.objectweb.asm to generate java bytecode.

The fix is carrying the constantTag for the method at call and check if 
tag is consistent with the method called. Doing this by adding a member 
of constantTag, _tag,  to LinkInfo, and check tag in resolve functions 
to see if tag matched with the correct method.

The fix solved the problem when call is from interpreter and compiler, 
bug for MethodHandle invoke, which should be addressed in another bug,  
since the MethodHandle does not come with a byte stream and getting the 
constant pool index at the invoke is not possible.  It will be addressed 
in another bug.

Tests: test case (added, minor modified from bug), JPRT, rutime quick 
test list(in progress).
manually tested:  1) -Xint
                                2) -Xcomp
                                3) -Xcomp -XX:-TieredCompiltion
                                4) -Xcomp -XX:+TieredCompilation

Thanks to Coleen for helping fixed constant pool index and cleaned LinkInfo.
