Problem Summary: For new_array allocation in inlining intrinsics, the
arguments should to pushed
back to the stack (through stack pointer adjustment) when an
uncommon_trap is actually inserted.
However, in functions like inline_native_clone, the stack pointer
adjustment was performed too early
(before new_array allocation), and if a deoptimization is triggered on
the slow path allocation, the control
will be transferred to the interpreter with an incorrect interpreter stack.
Proposed Solution: Adjust the stack pointer only when uncommon_trap is
Tests: passed with JPRT and the test cases attached to the CR 6589834.
