        Description

        The code generate for copy array of long is not optimised for the case where the src and/or dest are not 128 bit aligned.

        Some partners HW has improved performance when the address is 128 bit aligned.

        This issue proposed optimising array copy long so that all load/store are 128 bit aligned even when the src/dst are not aligned with respect to each other.

        A new flag will be provided -XX:+AvoidUnalignedAccesses to enable this. This flag will be turned on by default for partners where it is known that there is a performance benefit.
