      Description

      The class java.lang.Compiler supposedly provides a high level reflective
      interface to the underlying JIT. This interface is effectively ignored by
      Hotspot, and by many other implementations.

      We have long ago abandoned efforts for a standaradized JIT interface. JITs and
      their technologies vary too widely. At the user level, it is unclear why control
      of a quality-of-implementation factor like a JIT needs to be available in a
      portable form.
