You might probably be interested in the Apache Harmony project
(opensource Java SE).

We have an agressively optimizing JIT compiler with a number of
sophisticated optimizations. We also have a JIT "TODO List"
with ideas/suggestions for further development:
("BBP" (back-branch polling) is a scheduling issue, for example:)

feel free to take ideas and participate ;)
