Currently, JVMCI uses Class.getDeclared[Methods|Constructors|Fields] to convert JVMCI objects to java.lang.reflect.[Method|Constructor|Field] objects. This leads to issues such as JDK-8209535 which can be avoided altogether by creating the reflection objects directly. This webrev uses a direct JVMCI VM call to create the reflection objects instead.
