after investigating I see a number of issues preventing gtest from running
on AIX, so I decided to get the fix for the wrong assert in the hotspot out
of the way and open follow up issues for the other problems.
So, this is just the fixed assert, fixed in the fashion David suggested.
All other issues I will fix separately later.
(Hope the link is correct, the website seems down at the moment).
Thank you for reviewing,
