7110832: ctw/.../org_apache_avalon_composition_util_StringHelper crashes the VM
Distance is too large for one short branch in string_indexofC8(). Note, it does
not fail always because different REX prefixes are generated for different input
I added verification code in debug VM by reducing allowed distance (by 32 bytes)
for short branches. It can be used in a large hand written assembler code.
Tested with full CTW.
