Oleg did more analysis on this and it appears the reason hotspot on Linux was faster than the C version was because on Linux it is -server compiler (c2) whereas on Windows / Mac it is client compiler (c1). Possibly using -server on windows / mac would also have hotspot beating the C version, although that hasn't been tested.
