I pushed the JDK update for meth-bcp-6939196.patch to hotspot-comp/jdk/.

You are right that this shouldn't affect just a fastdebug build.

Maybe the discrepancy is a problem with CHECK_UNHANDLED_OOPS, which is turned on *only* with Solaris fastdebug builds.
If it's not a Solaris build, or it's product or plain debug build, CHECK_UNHANDLED_OOPS will not do its special thing.
If in addition it is a SPARC-only problem, that narrows it down to an occurence of the name 'oop' methodHandles_sparc or similar code.
