Hi Igor,

Thanks for waiting on this.  A couple of comments:

- Section 6.5 Instructions for invokeinterface does indicate that a 
"Linking Exceptions" the VM can throw an ICCE if the resolved method is 
static or private.  So I think moving this exception from runtime to 
linktime is okay.

- I'm concerned about the change on line #998, #1030, #1316.  I don't 
think you are necessarily guaranteed to have the bytecodes that you are 
now passing to resolve_interface_method.  For example, line #998 within 
linktime_resolve_static_method, you may not have an invokestatic here, 
you may have another invoke* bytecode trying to invoke a static 
interface method.  Passing in Bytecodes::_invokestatic seems wrong, 
because even if the resolved method is static, "nostatics" was set to false.

Just curious did you also run the testbase default methods 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).
