If vtables are pinned Aleksey's solution does not affect JITs at all.

If vtables move, it will be one more level of indirection for guarded
devirtualization: was object->vtable, will be object->vtable->class.

Unpinning vtables does not cause the need to enumerate them from JIT, if JIT
does not store pointers to them.
