There is MacroAssembler::int_constant(n). It is there, and it returns an
address that you can use with ADR and/or LDR . It won't work with a native
method because they have no constant pool (int_constant() will return NULL)
but I don't think you need barriers for native methods.

(Um, perhaps you do, for synchronized ones? They have a reference to a class.)

Anyway, this is your patch with a working (probably) deoptimize handler:
