Hi all ,

Having found and already reported (at, the above bug, I would
be indebted to you if you would be good enough to review the patch (which
is included in-line in the above due to its small size) with a view to
implementation in jdk9 and later back-porting to jdk8u. At the time of
writing, both the bug and the efficacy of the patch, have been tested on
x86, x86_64, ppc, ppc64 & ppcle platforms.

TIA & rgds ,
