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