If javac encounters a native method with no arguments in either MethodHandle
or VarHandle, an NPE will occur.  The stack trace is similar to JDK-8168774.

Owen, wouldn't this be marked as a duplicate of JDK-8168774 ? JDK-8172291 is the backport-id for the 8u152 fix. JDK-8175314 is the backport-id for the 8u131 fix. It went into b08.

Removing the 8BPR label from this bug as it is now added to the duplicate bug JDK-8172291
