Hi all,

I look into MacroAssembler::stop method and see, that all platforms 
except ppc are saving registers on stack. Is it a bug on ppc or
is there a reason to save registers on stack there?

This code is inlined in multiple places and wasting code cache. I'd like 
to remove or reshape it to be less bulky on aarch64.
