Please, could I get reviews for the following change:

bug   : https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8220794
webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~gromero/8220794/v1/

It fixes the JVM signal handler on Linux / PPC64 when a SIGSEGV generated
by a branch to an illegal/invalid address (not mapped address, address with no
executable flags, etc) is caught by the JVM signal handler. Currently the signal
handler does not handle that case correctly and the JVM crashes silently.

That issue was reported by Goetz (SAP). Thanks for reporting the issue, Goetz.

Thank you.

Best regards,
