I see a fix for a specific problem, but I don't see anything preventing 
similar problems (a change in ConstantPool that's isn't reflected in 
VM_RedefineClasses::merge_cp_and_rewrite) from happening again.  I 
understand that merge_cp_and_rewrite needs to have intimate knowledge of 
CP internals, but maybe some refactoring could reduce the future change 
"risk surface".
