Thanks for taking a look!

What problem are you referring to?
The actual problem I fixed with this patch is platform independent. It's caused by C2 code not bailing out if the platform dependent code was unable to create a stub (see changes in 'output.cpp'). I only removed the call to 'start_a_stub' in the aarch64 code because it is useless. I don't see this call on ppc though.
