class PrimitiveForwarders
extends MiniPhaseTransform with IdentityDenotTransformer

This phase adds forwarder where mixedin generic and primitive typed methods have a missmatch. In particular for every method that is declared both as generic with a primitive type and with a primitive type <mods> def f[Ts](ps1)...(psN): U in trait Mand def fTs...(psN): V = ...in implemented in N where U is a primitive and V a polymorphic type (or vice versa) needs:

def fTs...(psN): U = super[N].fTs...(psN)

IMPORTANT: When\If Valhalla happens, we'll need to move mixin before erasure and than this code will need to be rewritten as it will instead change super-class.
