It's not broken, it just does not work.  The reason it doesn't work is
this code that's ifndef SHARK:

	mov	r0, tmp2
	mov	r1, ip
#ifndef SHARK
	add	r3, r3, #CODE_ALIGN_SIZE
	mov	r2, tmp1
	blx	r3

In other words, CODE_ALIGN_SIZE (64) is added to the program counter,
and we enter CppInterpreter::normal_entry + 64.

So, because of this offset of 64 there are no circumstances in which
it's ever correct to call CppInterpreter::normal_entry from the ARM
asm interpreter.  Maybe we should abort in that case.

I'll fix that if you can provide a test case.
