Also, MacroAssembler code was added to save/restore the result of the upcall around the call on the back-edge, which was previously missing. Since the new code allocates a handle block as well, I've added handling for those oops to frame & OptimizedUpcallBlob.

I've addressed the new review comments, changing some `Thread*` to `JavaThread*`, removing now redundant casts, and finally noticed that the `Thread*` being passed to `ProgrammableUpcallHandle::detach_thread` was not being used, and it was always detaching the current thread instead. This in itself is fine, but then there's no need for the parameter, so I've dropped that.
