_get_previous_fp broken on bsd with llvm-gcc

You will likely see the fix more quickly if you push it yourself
into hotspot-comp.

Going thru hotspot-rt would mean waiting for hotspot-rt -> hotspot-main
and then getting it on the next sync from hotspot-main -> hotspot-comp.
Since it is already Thursday, I don't think the fix would make this
week's hotspot-rt -> hotspot-main push so it wouldn't be in hotspot-main
until sometime next week...

Please put me on the interest list for the bug.
