      Description

      Revision 13238 (http://jikesrvm.svn.sourceforge.net/jikesrvm/?rev=13238&view=rev) added NoBoundsCheck and NoNullCheck annotation to a method of VM_Assembler, I believe as another way to workaround a presumed opt compiler bug. Having these annotations here is not a desirable long term fix: we need to determine why the generated code is bad if we have a bounds check in it and fix the root problem.

          Moving to 3.0 as unlikely to have the necessary O2 optimizations ready for the 2.9.2 release.
