Description Zoltan Varga 2014-09-15 15:28:34 UTC


Calls made from generic shared code sometimes hit this case in mini-trampolines.c:

			if (ji && target_ji && generic_shared && ji->has_generic_jit_info && !target_ji->has_generic_jit_info) {
				 * Can't patch the call as the caller is gshared, but the callee is not. Happens when
				 * generic sharing fails.
				 * FIXME: Performance problem.
				no_patch = TRUE;
