Trying to debug this issue, but it seems this value of 1 is being passed as an argument call value, which is causing bad memory to be read.


So load pool is loading index 30, which seems to be at bad memory. So maybe the constant pool register was trashed? or was not valid?

`***** @4f103158 LOAD_POOL /INVOKEVIRT L135 /J26`.
` A:[ 30, 22] V:[ +0, +1060460]`.


Oh, so there is a load pool which reads a value of 28.


So after jvmIsInstance() I see register 15 is 1 and it tries to do an atomic increment and such on it. INSTANCEOF before that call after the instance stuff copies 1 into register 15. So I wonder if that is wrong because the 1 is from the return value. The check is doing if r9 is an instance of r21 which is true. So I think the instanceof check is off.


I think it might be a transition issue from a branch?


Okay the instructions do not seem to add up? At String.equals() IFNE | L131 /J11 if they are not equals they jump to another address and I have a thought right now about it. In the byte code it says to jump to J16 but in the code set it ends up being J17. J16 is aload_1 which means that the original value is not being read because it ends up getting cached by the stack cacher when it should be invalid.


Okay so whatever is on the stack, is cached from register 9 (local 1). So that is fine. Checkcast has a cached input (virtual 15 as register 9), then it drops that value.


Okay so, instanceof drops its value into register 15. Then IFNE is done on that r15, which sould then invalidate its value on the stack. Then check cast would be done on the virtual 14 which is local 2 (9). So that value is completely eaten. Then astore_2 of r15 is done (into r10).


So I am pretty sure my stack transitioning code is wrong because this value in r15 should be null?


Okay before I go more into debugging, I am going to write an actual utility which through the build engine can print the byte code and native code side by side with actual source lines too!


So now I have source printing, but I should add a line population count so I can sort of tell the difference between them.


Now that I have this utility perhaps debugging this will be easier.


Okay so, I think CHECKCAST is having troubles. Pretty sure it is in this instruction. Because CHECKCAST reads a value in, then writes a value out that is the same result. But my code smartly does not do this copy of a value. So maybe the caching is incorrect?


Okay, so I corrected CHECKCAST by adding a new stack type, hopefully it does something.
