      Description

      The client VM (i.e., `-client`) is essentially broken right now if INCLUDE_JVMCI is defined. For example, this code in globalDefinitions.hpp:

      #if defined(COMPILER2) || defined(SHARK) || INCLUDE_JVMCI
        CompLevel_highest_tier = CompLevel_full_optimization, // pure C2 and tiered or JVMCI and tiered
      #elif defined(COMPILER1)
        CompLevel_highest_tier = CompLevel_simple, // pure C1 or JVMCI
      #else
        CompLevel_highest_tier = CompLevel_none,
      #endif

      basically means that the client VM will never actually perform any compilation (i.e., -client essentially implies -Xint). Every appearance of INCLUDE_JVMCI should be (re)audited to ensure it's not breaking the client VM like the above example. Note that this breakage happens even with -XX:-EnableJVMCI.
