[drlvm][jitrino] Bugs in the implementation of Method_Table class   

                 Key: HARMONY-5124
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-5124
             Project: Harmony
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: DRLVM
            Reporter: li, shisheng
            Priority: Trivial

the file is: working_vm\vm\jitrino\src\shared\methodtable.cpp

in the implementation of member function *init*, there are some errors

1. parameter default_envvar is declared as a *const char* pointer, but used as normal pointer,
here is the code snippet 

void Method_Table::init(const char *default_envvar, const char *envvarname)
    char *envvar = (char*)default_envvar;
    if (envvar[0] == '"')
        envvar ++;
    if (envvar[strlen(envvar)-1] == '"') 
        envvar[strlen(envvar)-1] = '\0';

the problem is that default_envvar is changed into a normal char pointer and then may be modified
by the last statement. 
the source of this parameter is from the ctor of this class 

Method_Table::Method_Table(MemoryManager& memManager, 
                           const char *default_envvar,
                           const char *envvarname,
                           bool accept_by_default): 

2. another problem of the above code snippet is that it does not check the boundary of the
string in the last two statements 

image that if envvar contains only one character "\"", the double quote character, in the
last *if* statement, 
strlen(envvar) will be 0, and strlen(envvar)-1 will be 0xffffffff (for 32-bit pointer) because
strlen() return unsigned value normally

the following steps is about how to trigger out this error

1). add the following line in the opt.emconf (just under -XX:jit.CS_OPT.arg.optimizer.inline.pipeline=CS_OPT_inliner_pipeline)

2). prepare a helloworld like this
package helloworld;
public class Main {
    public static void main(String[] args) { 

3). run java.exe like this
working_vm\build\deploy\jdk\jre\bin\java.exe -Xem:working_vm\vm\jitrino\config\ia32\opt.emconf
 -jar helloworld.jar

4). at least on my machine, the vm launcher will crash, here is the desc. of my machine

windows xp professional version 2002 SP2
Pentium(R) 4CPU 3.00Ghz
2.99Ghz, 0.99GB of RAM

3. solution for such errors is simple, maybe simple code refactor
