This is more or less a copy of a previous patch that was made to JDI [1], but this patch applies to the SA implementation of JDI.

ReferenceType.visibleMethods() has some problems with diamond shaped interface hierarchies. The solution here is to maintain a list of interfaces that we have visited so that we do not visit interfaces (above the top of the diamond) more than once.

This change is targeted for jdk9 so I will hold on to it until the repos open up.
