I think that's because current ISC not only prompts the compilation of
java.lang.invoke infra, but also spins up an anonymous class that holds
the concat stub (to be switched off in a few weeks), which would also
get compiled when hot.

Anyhow, that's a trigger, and not the underlying issue. The underlying
issue is DoSing the JVM through System.gc/runFinalization busyloop.
