This seems to be the miscompilation indeed:

# {method} 'think' '()V' in 'InterruptedVisibilityTest'
  0x00007f31890601a3: mov    0x14(%r10),%r11d      // read $interrupted
  0x00007f31890601a7: test   %r11d,%r11d           // test $interrupted
  0x00007f31890601aa: jne    0x00007f31890601c9    // exit branch
  0x00007f31890601ac: mov    %rbp,%r10             // LOOP START
  0x00007f31890601af: test   %eax,0xb15ee4b(%rip)  // safepoint
  0x00007f31890601b5: jmp    0x00007f31890601ac    // LOOP END

Will raise the appropriate issue against OpenJDK once I finish with a
quick errand here. Thanks for the test case!
