Description
Running the audio-*-data.js scripts from the kraken benchmark (https://hg.mozilla.org/projects/kraken/) with JDK 8u152 or later produces the following error:

Comments
The assumption behind JDK-8169481 was that primitive literal nodes would have uniform code footprint - basically a constant load. However, it turns out that footprint can change quite a bit depending on context. The Kraken benchmark contains the following code pattern in its audio-*-data.js files: new Array(-9.063918018914485e-12,-3.261597155551632e-12,-7.691810383070319e-11, ... ) with 2048 number literals passed to the Array constructor. Each number literal generates the following bytecode: 12 dup 13 iconst_0 14 ldc 3.079756197621464E-6 17 invokestatic Double.valueOf(D)Double; 20 aastore i.e. the array is duplicated, the index is loaded, then the double is loaded and converted to an object, then it is stored in the array. The solution is thus to back out of the change for primitive literals in WeighNodes.java and assume a code footprint of 10 bytes again.

This is caused by JDK-8169481. The changed node weighing rules prevent splitting from happening for some of the kraken benchmark code. The solution will likely be to undo some or all of these changes.
