After some internal discussion, I’m going to withdraw this RFE. Instead, I’ll generate a “JVMCI cleanup” RFE that among other changes:
- preserves JVMCIError in jdk.vm.ci.common (but removes the context functionality)
- moves InitTimer to jdk.vm.ci.common (getting rid of at least one single class project)

This means building with mx has been broken since that API usage was introduced. I can pull this out into a separate RFE if necessary but am hoping it can piggy back on this bug.
