Remove implicit conversion from Method* to methodHandle

    Details

      Description

      The implicit conversion from Method* to methodHandle requires calling Thread::current() which is fairly cheap these days, but there's a THREAD local almost always present. Also, removing conversions would fix the case where we have

      void foo(const methodHandle& m) {}

      methodHandle m(some method);
      foo(m());

      which converts from and to methodHandle unnecessarily but silently.

      Also ConstantPool* to constantPoolHandle.
