      Description

      Java web start does not work on Mac OS X 10.7.x when tested with the latest OS-compiler-upgrade build.
      This problem is specific to Mac OS X 10.7..x (not occurred with Mac OX S 10.8.x or Windows,Linux platforms). The same issue also does not happen on Mac 10.7.x with the corresponding jdk8-b104 promotion build

      *** Tested Environment:
      - x64 Mac OS X 10.7.5
      - Latest OS-compiler-upgrades build:
      http://rehudson.us.oracle.com/nightlyws/OS_compiler_upgrades/8.0/b104_2013-08-19-1732_24-macox-gcc/bundles/macosx-x86_64/jre-8-ea-bin-b104-macosx-x86_64-19_aug_2013.dmg

      **** Steps to repreoduce:
      0) Install the latest Mac OS X compiler upgrade build at the above location
      1) Invoke javaws from /Library/Internet P{lug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/
      e.g javaws -uninstall
      or javaws http;//bugster.sfbay.sun.com

      If javaws failed to launch with the error "Illegal instruction: 4", the issue is reproducible
