I don't think that would work.  If you have a CNI method (i.e. one
written in C++) in a Java class, that CNI method must access the local
static data of the class of which it is a member.

As I said, all this will go away once we fix the CNI implementation so
that symbol lookups use libgcj's own resolution.
