Apologies for this -- it is my fault. I introduced the spelling mistake
when I transcribed my revision of Max's patch into email. I guess I
should have sent him a webrev but I merely wanted to highlight the error
in the AArch64 part of the patch.

n.b. Before replying to Max I applied the patch lines as shown above
except with correct spelling as wordSize and the corresponding test
passed on AArch64. So, correcting this typo should correct the problem.
