    Description

      We still have a lot of load(exp).convert(type) style expressions in CodeGenerator. They generate unnecessary static conversion code, e.g.

          invokedynamic dyn:call(Object;Object;String;)Object;
          invokestatic JSType.toBoolean(Object;)Z

      instead of the more natural

          invokedynamic dyn:call(Object;Object;String;)Z

      These remaining expressions should be changed to load(exp, type).
