[drlvm] confusing and ineffective custom calling convention for multianewarray helper
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HARMONY-5152
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-5152
             Project: Harmony
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: DRLVM
            Reporter: Alexey Varlamov
            Priority: Minor


The multianewarray helper uses quite specific calling convention: caller-pop, arguments are
passed through stack in left-to-right order (for all platforms). The problem is that this
CC is named "CDECL", which is very confusing. Moreover it is ineffective for non-x86_32 platforms,
loosing advantages of register quantity.

So at least the name should be changed to avoid confusion, or (better) the helper itself reworked
to use appropriate platform CC.
