Hi Igor,

I know you have two reviews for this but could you hold off committing 
until I or Karen Kinnear have a chance to review.  We both worked in 
this area a lot to support default methods in JDK 8. Also, have you run 
the hotspot/test/runtime/SelectionResolution tests on this?

The check for that happens in the runtime part of the resolution, however, doing it at linktime seems like a better place, since the check doesn't depend on the receiver type. It also allows compiler interfaces that rely on linktime resolution to detect inconsistencies during parsing (see ciEnv::lookup_method() (CI) and ConstantPool.lookupMethod() (JVMCI) that are affected).
