Hi team,

x3 is a special register on RISCV and we should not use it as a register allocation candidate - if users write JNI programs referencing global variables, where ld could link global reference loading logic to an instruction like 'ld $Rtmp, $offset(x3)', and try to call vm functions, C1 will zap x3's value and causes a crash. It seems C2 doesn't use x3 so we are just aligning the logic with C2 properly.
