I would like to update JamVM for the icedtea 1.13 release to the 2013-11-18 revision, patch attached.
For icedtea 1.13 this update will bring in the following JamVM bug-fixes and improvements:

- JVM_NewMultiArray: element class may be an array

- jtreg test java/lang/reflect/Array/ExceedMaxDim

- OpenJDK: Fix Local/Anonymous class checks

- classlibMarkThreadTerminated should return Object*

- Fix race-condition in constant-pool resolution code

- Race condition in setting up imethod table

- GC: Minor performance improvement

Test results:
https://gist.github.com/xranby/817621fa14862158d8a3 32bit X86 Ubuntu 12.04
No regressions observed for hotspot and langtools.
The JDK test still stops in the middle of the make check-jdk run although it is now able to run more than 1000 tests
compared to previous record of ~200 before stopping which is a major improvement.
