  // Determine if the current compiler provides an intrinsic
  // for method 'method'. An intrinsic is available if:
  //  - the intrinsic is enabled (by using the appropriate command-line flag) and
  //  - the platform on which the VM is running supports the intrinsic
  //    (i.e., the platform provides the instructions necessary for the compiler
  //    to generate the intrinsic code).
  // The second parameter, 'compilation_context', is needed to implement functionality
  // related to the DisableIntrinsic command-line flag. The DisableIntrinsic flag can
  // be used to prohibit the compilers to use an intrinsic. There are three ways to
  // disable an intrinsic using the DisableIntrinsic flag:
  // (1) -XX:DisableIntrinsic=_hashCode,_getClass
  //     Disables intrinsification of _hashCode and _getClass globally
  //     (i.e., the intrinsified version the methods will not be used at all).
  // (2) -XX:CompileCommand=option,aClass::aMethod,ccstr,DisableIntrinsic,_hashCode
  //     Disables intrinsification of _hashCode if it is called from
  //     aClass::aMethod (but not for any other call site of _hashCode)
  // (3) -XX:CompileCommand=option,java.lang.ref.Reference::get,ccstr,DisableIntrinsic,_Reference_get
  //     Some methods are not compiled by C2. Instead, the C2 compiler
  //     returns directly the intrinsified version of these methods.
  //     The command above forces C2 to compile _Reference_get, but
  //     allows using the intrinsified version of _Reference_get at all
  //     other call sites.
  // From the modes above, (1) disable intrinsics globally, (2) and (3)
  // disable intrinsics on a per-method basis. In cases (2) and (3) the
  // compilation context is aClass::aMethod and java.lang.ref.Reference::get,
