    Description

      The accessFlags in field, method and klass should be only the ones that javac puts in the classfile. JVM state should be separated out to other flag or status bits, depending on whether they are read-only or, in the case of status flags, read-write. The read-write flags should be written atomically.

      Adding flags to accessFlags for valhalla and other new projects in Amber, have exposed the need to fix this area of technical debt.
