JSR 292: remove support for transient syntax in polymorphic signature calls

      Description

      The initial version if compiler changes supporting 292 features contained special syntax for denoting return type in a polymorphic signature call. Such syntax, leveraging explicit type-arguments in method calls, has been dropped in favor of a syntax leveraging cast:

      BEFORE:

      s = mh.<String>invokeExact("daddy",'d','n');

      AFTER:

      s = (String)mh.invokeExact("bunny",'n','d');

      Old syntax is still allowed in order to favor migration of existing 292 clients to the new syntax - however, such support is meant to be transient and, consequently, is to be removed.
