>> 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`.
