Right, conceptually it seems it shouldn't be difficult to do that given
this method is intrinsically known to the JVM.

I don't think safepoint poll would need retention either.  Given the method
isn't called and is just a pseudo marker for liveness, skipping its
would-be safepoint seems perfectly fine; safepoint poll
placement/optimization should work as-if this method didn't exist at all.
