Description Alberto Garcia 2019-11-27 05:39:26 PST
The latest development release of WebKitGTK fails to build in several
non-major architectures (mips64el, ppc64el, s390x, ...):

../Source/JavaScriptCore/heap/GCMemoryOperations.h:125:2: error: #error "Unknown architecture."
  125 | #error "Unknown architecture."

A quick look suggests that functions like gcSafeMemcpy() and possibly
others have fast implementations in x86_64 and arm64 but fall back to
a slower memcpy implementation in other cases.

The detection of when to use the slow path seems to be incorrect,
hence the error.

We should add ENABLE_CONCURRENT_GC in Platform.h, and enable it only for X64 / ARM64.
And we should also ensure USE_CONCURRENT_JS is enabled in x64 / ARM64. Then, we should use regular memset/memcpy for non concurrent environment.
