With reference to https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8072070, there is the same issue on the riscv platform.

Every time we enter a method in interpreter, we bang a lot of stack ahead for shadow zone checks. I believe this could be made significantly better, e.g. by checking how far away we are from the stack_overflow_limit.

Hotspot/jdk tier1 passed on unmatched, and all jtreg cases were tested on Qemu without new failures.

Performed the performance regression test in SPECjvm2008 sunflow, and achieved 17% improvement in the interpreter-only mode.
