Allow a dynamically generated class to load live constants computed by the class definer

    Details

      Description

      One feature of `Unsafe::defineAnonymousClass` is constant pool patching that is used by LambdaForm and few external libraries [1].

      One idea is to allow a dynamically generated class be defined with a class data which can only be obtained by a full-power lookup (e.g. `Lookup::classData` method).
