Accessing parameters from a methodHandle

Can you elaborate what problem are you trying to solve?
It sounds like you want to iterate over all parameters of a compiled
method in C2.
methodHandle is a Handle for Method* which an internal representation of
a Java method. It doesn't provide any way to extract actual argument
representation during compilation.
During parsing you can use GraphKit::method(), ciMethod::arg_size(), and
GraphKit::argument(int i) to operate on arguments of a method being
parsed. See opto/library_call.cpp for examples.

However, this variable doesn’t match the actual number of parameters passed to the corresponding Java method. Any suggestions?
