Please take a look at 
I changed patch according to x86 fix and current code layout:

- renamed methods parameters from "end" to "count" to avoid confusing 
names and match x86
- updated G1BarrierSetAssembler::gen_write_ref_array_post_barrier 
implementation: removed code with calculation of "count" value and using 
"count" directly instead
- updated ShenandoahBarrierSetAssembler::arraycopy_epilogue in same way 
as G1 code
- updated CardTableBarrierSetAssembler::gen_write_ref_array_post_barrier 
with zero length branch and calculation of inclusive end pointer to 
match original logic
- updated arraycopy_epilogue usage by removing unnecessary end pointer 
calculation and providing array length (count) instead

I also run jtreg hotspot/compiler, hotspot/gc, hotspot/runtime and jck 
with G1GC, ParallelGC and ShenandoahGC
No regressions found.
