RaiseException(Ruby runtime, RubyClass type, String msg, IRubyObject backtrace, boolean native) constructor despite accepting an IRubyObject backtrace parameter (and not just RubyArray), passing a nil does not end up with the RubyException#backtrace being nil but rather an empty array which is not fortunate as in user-land its easy to dismiss and confusing.

like to use the constructor for optional "lightweight" exception raising such as jruby/jruby-openssl#55

p.s. I'd like to consider backporting these changes to jruby-1_7 if there's no objections to that.

... little more confusing than a `nil` but for now has todo (until jruby/jruby#3488)

…() lazy

the `backtrace()` return value when doing `set_backtrace` was ignored anyway

which is slightly faster ... avoids an instanceof check + Ruby boolean wrapping

the changes also slightly improved performance (when backtrace is not accessed) e.g.

require 'hitimes'

def measure(count = 1_000)
  Hitimes::Interval.measure do
    count.times do
      rescue RuntimeError => e
        puts e.message if false

print "warmup: "
puts measure(200_000).inspect
print "......: "
puts measure(500_000).inspect


warmup: 12.830130032
