The problem evaluation and fix were done by Roland:
"Crash goes away when run with -XX:-UseMultiplyToLenIntrinsic.
After intrinsification of MultiplyToLen, type speculation registers the fact that profiling reported non null objects
being returned. It adds a CheckCastPP node for that. The MultiplyToLen sets its return type to TypeAryPtr::INTS. The
CheckCastPP that is created by type speculation casts the non speculative type to TypeAryPtr::INTS which has an offset
of Type::OffsetBot. Even after the speculative part of the CheckCastPP is removed, the CheckCastPP is not optimized out
and the buildOopMap code wrongly assumes the result of the CheckCastPP to be a derived pointer."
Use TypeAryPtr::INT type with offset 0.
