Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8222286
Webrev: https://cr.openjdk.java.net/~andrew/openjdk11/8222286/webrev.01/

On s390 (the 31-bit architecture), calls to log2_intptr with a size_t
argument are ambiguous, because there is log2_intptr(uintptr_t x) and
log2_intptr(intptr_t x). This is not a problem on other architectures
where size_t is the same as uintptr_t. See existing bugs for
more details of the s390 situation [0] [1] [2].

The issue can be resolved by explicitly casting to uintptr_t.

It is not applicable to >= 12u, as JDK-8213436 removed the problematic
function in which this occurs.

Ok for 11u?
