In C1, address resolution of an accessed field is not always possible,
because the offset of the class of the object being accessed, has not
yet been loaded. In ZGC, we use lea to resolve the address of fields.
Therefore, the lea instruction needs to be patchable for ZGC. This
enhancement aims to add support for such patching on SPARC.
