      Description

      Currently Jikes RVM cannot run on any of the publicly available cycle-accurate simulators.

      Previously we could run on DSS, but we can no longer do this since DSS does not support more recent versions of libc which classpath and Jikes RVM now rely on.

      Probably the best option is PTLSim (http://ptlsim.org), however PTLSim has bugs in its IA32 signal handling code, so cannot run Jikes RVM at present. On the other hand we can't utilize PTLSim's robust IA32-64 mode until we have an IA32-64 port working.
