        This code:

        === base/BaseImpl.java ===
        package base;

        public class BaseImpl {
          static void foo(Object o) {}
        }
        ===

        === Test.java ===
        class Impl extends base.BaseImpl {
          public void foo(Object o) {}
        }

        class MyImpl extends Impl {
          public void m(Object o) {
            foo(o);
          }
        }
