Hi there,
I am trying to porting Mono 4.2.1 into aix 6.1, it was compiled in 32bits mode.
At present, I faced a segment fault at :
return runtime_invoke (obj, params, exc, info->compiled_method);
this is line is the last one in function mono_jit_runtime_invoke.
It seems  'runtime_invoke' could not be invoked so it leads to core dump.  The call stack is following:
#0  0x7c0802a4 in ?? ()
#1  0x102ff224 in mono_jit_runtime_invoke (method=0x200def38, obj=0x30400038, params=0x2ff22800, exc=0x0) at mini-runtime.c:2343

    attach_cb=@0x200230ec: 0x102fb988 <mono_thread_attach_cb>) at appdomain.c:265
#7  0x103012c0 in mini_init (filename=0x2ff22ce6 "./hello.exe", runtime_version=0x0) at mini-runtime.c:3140

#9  0x10000a20 in mono_main_with_options (argc=2, argv=0x2ff22c48) at main.c:91

Hello.exe is a simple C# program compiled on linux platform.
public class HelloWorld
    static public void Main ()

I think the runtime_invoke is just a invoke wrapper, the actual function is info->compiled_method.
I could print out those function debug info:
invoker:  (wrapper runtime-invoke) <Module>:runtime_invoke_void__this___object (object,intptr,intptr,intptr) + 0x0 (303cdde8 303cdf50) [20099078 - hello.exe]
compiled method:  System.OutOfMemoryException:.ctor (string) + 0x0 (303cdd80 303cddcc) [20099078 - hello.exe]

My question are:
1. why use a invoker wrapper? Where did runtime_invoke_void__this___object comes from?
2.  I guess JIT could not compile such runtime_invoke_void__this___object (object,intptr,intptr,intptr) correctly. But how could I find out the problem place?
Should I inspect the native definition places. Such as cpu-ppc.md and mini-ppc.c and so on. Is my direction correct? Is there any another simpler way to resolve the problem?

I am new to Mono, many thing I need to learn. Please help me.
Thank you in advance!
