The change in monitor_enter, even the safest one, touches every
application that runs. Just because it's touching threading and
synchronization. So I'm very pessimistic that ordinary reasoning on
"change locality" is enough here. Like we can't miss this NPE bug in
M8, we can't miss the occasional regression while fixing this bug :)
