I can see that will fix the assertion for you, but then begs the 
question as to whether VMRegImpl::set_regName itself has any 
initialization dependencies. The answer to that is not obvious to me. I 
_think_ the Register setup only depends on C++ static initialization.

Hopefully someone from compiler team can confirm this change is in fact
