Hi Lois,

Thanks for looking at it. Yes, it passes all hotspot jtreg tests.

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).
