  // Usage note: the declared holder of a field is the class
  // referenced by name in the bytecodes.  The canonical holder
  // is the most general class which holds the field.  This
  // method returns the canonical holder.  The declared holder
  // can be accessed via a method in ciBytecodeStream.

  //     class A {
  //       public int f = 7;

  //       public void test() {
  //         System.out.println(f);

  //   3. If the field is an object or array, then the oop
  //      in question is allocated in perm space.
  //   4. The field is not one of the special static/final
  //      non-constant fields.  These are
  //      and java.lang.System.out.  Abomination.
