Access to the tmp_oop in a frame is done with several #ifdefs
distinguishing the platforms and interpreters. The PPC64 template
interpreter would introduce another one.
This change avoids the #ifs by introducing the accessor function
interpreter_frame_temp_oop_addr() as for many other fields in the frame.
Unfortunately this will require to implement interpreter_frame_temp_oop_addr()
in the closed sources I can not do. As the platform file for frame.hpp has
to be changed anyways, I propose to also move
oop* interpreter_frame_mirror_addr() const;
from frame.hpp into frame_ppc.hpp in the closed port.
Please review and test this change.
This change should also go to jdk8u. It's fine if this happens some later if the
path via ppc-aix-port/stage is not possible due to the closed change.
