Miscompilation of write barriers for unboxed types on PPC64 causes ExtremeAssertionsBaseBaseUsePrimitiveWriteBarriers to segfault during RVMThread.boot()

    Details

      Description

      The configuration ExtremeAssertionsBaseBaseUsePrimitiveWriteBarriers builds successfully on PPC64 but no test passes. The VM segfaults during statup.

      From what I can tell, it seems like the VM crashes during RVMThread.boot(). The crash seems to occur shortly after executing sysMonitorEnter (when running normally from the command line) or shortly after a sysMonitorCreate (when running under gdb).
