rev 5190 : 8024342: PPC64 (part 111): Support for C calling conventions that require 64-bit ints.
Summary: Some platforms, as ppc and s390x/zArch require that 32-bit ints are passed as 64-bit values to C functions. This change adds support to adapt the signature and to issue proper casts to c2-compiled stubs. The functions are used in generate_native_wrapper(). Adapt signature used by the compiler as in PhaseIdealLoop::intrinsify_fill().
