Instantiating sun.misc.Unsafe via reflection

suggest change
public static Unsafe getUnsafe() {
    try {
        Field unsafe = Unsafe.class.getDeclaredField("theUnsafe");
        return (Unsafe) unsafe.get(null);
    } catch (IllegalAccessException e) {
        // Handle
    } catch (IllegalArgumentException e) {
        // Handle
    } catch (NoSuchFieldException e) {
        // Handle
    } catch (SecurityException e) {
        // Handle

sun.misc.Unsafe has a Private constructor, and the static getUnsafe() method is guarded with a check of the classloader to ensure that the code was loaded with the primary classloader. Therefore, one method of loading the instance is to use reflection to get the static field.
