I would like us to consider moving out the "trusted fields" logic from
C2-ish LoadNode::Value to a shared code:


With this patch, primitive boxes and Strings are handled in the shared
code, where all other special cases are listed. Not only this is
cleaner, it also lets C1 to constant fold those cases too:

Some changes were neede in StringOpts, because it used to rely on
constant oop present in a graph after LoadNode::Value -- which was
inconsistent with the way we pull get_constant_coder anyway.

Testing: JPRT -testset hotspot, microbenchmarks, eyeballing assembly
