APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Error Message: An intermittent SIGSEGV/GPF is recieved, with
    vmState 0x00040000, when running certain Java workloads,
    particularly Eclipse-based workloads.
    .
    Stack Trace: N/A
    .
    Problem is highly intermittent
    

Local fix

  • The disableShrinkWrapping option can be added to -Xjit options.
    

Problem summary

  • The JIT compiler's "shrinkwrapping" optimization could
    occasionally generate code that would fail to save and restore a
    machine register when reusing that register for another purpose.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The JIT compiler has been modified not to perform the
    problematic optimization.
    .
