8019184: MethodHandles.catchException() fails when methods have 8 args + varargs

The bug seems to be in MethodHandlesImpl.makeGuardWithCatch using ValueConversions.varargsArray:

return makeCollectArguments(ginvoker, ValueConversions.varargsArray(nargs), 0, false);

ValueConversions.varargsArray returns a MethodHandle which's type is:


It doesn't preserve the trailing Object[].

The fix is to call makePairwiseConvert on the result of makeCollectArguments.
