> Constructing indexed var handles using the `MemoryLayout` API produces 
> `VarHandle` which do not check the input indices for out-of-bounds conditions.
> While this can never result in a VM crash (after all the memory segment will 
> protect against "true" OOB access), it is still possible for an access 
> expression to refer to parts of a segment that are logically unrelated.
> This patch adds a "logical" bound check to all indexed var handles generated 
> using the layout API.
> Benchmarks are not affected by the check. Users are still able to create 
> custom "unchecked" var handles, using the combinator API in `MethodHandles`.
