        Thanks for the pointer. I checked in crashes, where they are normally captured and didn't see anything. I didn't expect the bundle to end up with that data.

        I tried adding some code to verify that the boundaries on the code blobs are being respected but didn't see any problems. Looking more closely at the core file and a regular run I think I see what's happening though. The location of mappings in the JVM that crashed are slightly worse from a code generation perspective so we have to emit 8 instructions to emit some constants. This causes code expansion which causes us to overflow the buffer. Most of the time the values are smaller so that's why it's hard to reproduce the crash.

        An interim fix that could be pushed into the JDK would be to remove the VerifyMethodHandles option from that test and maybe others in that java/lang/invoke suite. I'm not actually sure why that's a product flag in the first place. That's causes a bunch extra assembly to be generated that we wouldn't normally allow in a product JVM. Turning it off should bring the total space required down to a safe level.

        I think what's happening is that a stub is running off the end its code blob and overwriting space which is on the free list. If search_freelist looks at it after that then it crashes. The free list pointer appears to be 0x7fffffff78067900.

        (dbx) x 0x7fffffff78067900/4lx

        $l7 = 0x9f2bf00c9e13e780

        disassembly further back looks like this:

        I thought it was an arraycopy stub at first but I think it's one of the stubs for method handles. I'll take a look and see what's happening.
