It's not a problem to check "isFinalizable" for JIT during the compilation.
The question is how to use this knowledge.
Today JIT has only 1 usage scenario: do not inline fast-path helper for
objects with 'finalize' method.
If JIT checks this property before generating a call to usual VM method what
is the option? Should JIT call different VM helper for allocation in this
