We turned on UseSSE because in the old JVM there was code in the
shared part of C2 which was only enabled with UseSSE, and AArch64
vectorization didn't work unless UseSSE was enabled.  I believe this
bug is fixed.

We turned on RoundFPResults by mistake.  We could turn it off, but
we'd have to do some testing because C1 code generation would be
different even though in theory it should work the same.
