> Currently DRLVM does *not* devirtualize interface calls. 
> here are some ideas how to implement this feature (from easiest to complicated)
> 0) if there is only one loaded class to implement the interface, choose it
> 1) if there are more, choose the one with it's method invoked earlier (compiled  by some
JIT, possibly, some other JIT), 
> 2) if we have many candidate methods that are compiled, choose the most frequent  one
(need a method-entry profile)
> 3) initial compilation can devirtualize all possible dispatches and count their edge
frequencies so we can rely on basic profiler when choosing the best path (on recompilation)
> 4) implement a real value profiler - this is not an easy task, but may be reused in other
optimizations
> 5) Add special annotations to classlib code about the most probable dispatch. E.g. if
the variable type does not depend on user's environment and developer can prove that 90% of
time the variable is of specific class - JIT can read this annotation from method during the
compilation and to devirtualize it.
