Currently we have in the existing code  various kind of buffers passed into initialize_shared_locs that compile nicely
on all supported compilers and on Xcode 12 as well ,see


326  char* locs_buffer = NEW_RESOURCE_ARRAY(char, locs_buffer_size);
327  code->insts()->initialize_shared_locs((relocInfo*)locs_buffer,


2681      CodeBuffer buffer(buf);
2682      short buffer_locs[20];
2683      buffer.insts()->initialize_shared_locs((relocInfo*)buffer_locs,
2684                                             sizeof(buffer_locs)/sizeof(relocInfo));

So probably using short would be consistent to what we do already in the coding at another place (looking into
relocInfo it would be probably better  to use unsigned short  or to   typedef  unsigned short in the relocInfo class
and use the typedef).
