        Description

        The JVM_GetPrimitiveFieldValues and JVM_SetPrimitiveFieldValues functions were once used to support java.io.ObjectOutputStream and java.io.ObjectInputStream respectively, but the last JDK which actually made use of the functions was JDK 1.3.1, meaning the code has been dead for 10+ years and should be removed.
