The comment on the change is:
Found another case in switch where explicit values would be nice

  || '''Title''' || '''Extend VMTT bytecode assembler''' ||
  || '''ASF Project''' || Apache Harmony http://harmony.apache.org ||
  || '''Keywords''' || Java, tools, vmtt||
- || '''Description''' || VMTT is a bytecode assembler used to test the Apache Harmony VM
and class library. For this task, you would extend it in several ways: adding real labels
(so one could write jsr loop instead of jsr -5), adding flexibility to emit more bad classes
(specifying padding for tableswitch/lookupswitch, allowing double/long constant pool entries
without a subsequent constant pool entry), allowing for mixed asm and bin in methods, allowing
for insertion of binary data in other places (such as the constant pool), warning users of
possible errors (such as bad code_length for a given code array (configurable)), and fixing
existing defects. If legal approval is available, you might extend VMTT to read the JASM format
as well.||
