Fix for 7020118: Alter frame assignability to allow for exception  
handler coverage of invokespecial <init>.


This fix to the verifier makes it possible to create an exception  
handler that covers the entirety of an <init> method, by specifying  
"Top" types in the stackmap in place of "UninitializedThis".  NetBeans  
profiler would like to generate such handlers, but the current  
implementation doesn't allow it.

Thanks for any review.
