> JVMCI permits trapping when exception handlers haven't been compiled into the generated code.  When this is a normal uncommon trap the counter in the MDO is updated but when the invalidation is forced during exception dispatch the counter isn't updated.  This leads to invalidate/recompile cycles that will never terminate because the compiler doesn't know why the previous invalidation happened.  Tested with a Graal unit test https://github.com/graalvm/graal/commit/d92dc3f90c0ba1502a9e28a4faf7973ffd9a1889#diff-96a2a5e9fc63d48d47a9ef9722a7c3d9R102.
