        Description

        The JVM currently links bytecodes which mention MH.invokeGeneric as if they had mentioned MH.invoke. This is an error, which will be detected by a negative test that attempts to work with the method named MH.invokeGeneric.

        The fix is simple: Change the default value of AllowInvokeGeneric to false.
        Or, delete the flag altogether.
