[concurrency-interest] Unsafe publication of generic reflection information?

Hi,

java.lang.Class#genericInfo is unsafely published. Although its property
getter checks for null and all the getters in ClassRepository do, too,
there is no such check for the members of
ClassRepository#superInterfaces array.

Could it be that a thread calling aClass.getGenericInterfaces() would
see an array with "holes" in it?

Thanks
Matthias
