Crash in native code when running Jikes RVM on Manjaro 15.12

Description

Jikes RVM crashes with a segmentation fault in native code when built on Manjaro 15.12. The issue was reported by Nils Axer.

The problem is caught by our test suite and trivially reproducible with the following program:

1 2 3 4 5 public class CrashInNativeCode { public static void main(String[] args) { System.out.println(Math.PI); } }

As a workaround, the option -fno-move-loop-invariants can be passed in the host properties to fix the problem. I've attached a patch that does this for the x86_64-linux configuration.

Environment

IA32 x86_64-linux, gcc 6.1.1
configurations: probably all (tested prototype, prototype-opt, development, production)
