      Description

      The current implementation of sun.reflect.ConstantPool only works for constant pools of classes. Some methods, like JSR 292 signature-polymorphic intrinsics, don't share the constant pool with their holder class but they have their own. In other words:

      m->constants() != m->method_holder()->constants()

      sun.reflect.ConstantPool should be extended to support these methods too.
