Wildcard initialization order produced confusing code

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • CPU:
      generic
    • OS:
      generic

      Description

      Because WildcardType.bound may not be initialized before a wildcard
      is used in a subtype question, the following code is used to determine
      the upper bound of super bounded wildcards:

        WildcardType w = (WildcardType)t;
        w.bound == null ? syms.objectType : w.bound.bound;

      This is unfortunate and should be addressed by rethinking how wildcards
      are set up.
