IV72217: VERY LARGE METHODS MAY BE MISCOMPILED ON POWERPC PLATFORMS
Closed as program error.
Error Message: Errors may include SIGSEGV/GPF, assertions, or incorrect output or behaviour. This problem only affects PowerPC platforms. This problem will likely only be seen in Java 8, or Java 6.1, Java 7, and Java 7.1 only when using the balanced or metronome GC policies. . Stack Trace: N/A .
This issue can be worked around by disabling the JIT compiler via the -Xint option. Disabling the JIT compiler will have a major impact on performance.
Certain very large methods that require the JIT compiler to emit a large number of machine instructions may result in incorrect code being generated. This problem only affects PowerPC platforms. This problem will likely only be seen in Java 8, or Java 6.1, Java 7, and Java 7.1 only when using the balanced or metronome GC policies.
The JIT has been fixed to generate correct code when a large number of machine instructions has been emitted. . This APAR will be fixed in the following Java Releases: 7 R1 SR3 (22.214.171.124) 7 SR9 (126.96.36.199) 6 R1 SR9 (188.8.131.52) .
