Hi Erik,

PPC64 and s390 parts look good.

Arraycopy should get removed from c1_Runtime1.hpp, too.

Best regards,

The Runtime1::arraycopy stub appears to only be used on S390 because 
there is no StubRoutines::generic_arraycopy() provided. However, C1 
could then simply take a slow path and call its arraycopy stub that 
performs a native call. Then this logic may be removed.

I added an assert on each platform that I think should have a 
generic_arraycopy() stub, and added a branch to the slow path on S390 if 
there is no such stub. If a stub is eventually added on S390, it should 
automatically pick that up.
