> This work improves Zero performance considerably, without complicating the interpreter all that much. This work is based on much earlier patch by @rkennke, then edited by @jerboaa, and finally polished by me here :)
> SPECjvm benchmarks improve across the board, with lowest improvement on `Derby` (+6%) and largest on `Compress` (+50%). Given that Zero is used to implement the JVM on emerging platforms that are still rather slow themselves, it makes sense to make Zero quantifiably faster. Even 10% improvement means more than 2 hours a day worth of CPU time.
> Additional testing:
>  - [x] Linux x86_64 Zero fastdebug bootcycle-images
>  - [x] Linux x86_64 Zero fastdebug fuzzer tests (no failures = no new behaviors introduced)
