IonMonkey PowerPC phase 2 complete
We've moved from phase 1 (putative construction) to phase 2 (successful compilation and linking). It makes a big mess and immediately segfaults, but at least it builds. A portion of mild concern was that AsmJS requires an exception handler (!), so I'm hoping it can still be properly disabled in 24 (#undef JS_ASMJS) or we could have some difficult to debug problems with asm.js scripts. For the remainder of 22 I'll be filling in more gaps, but I won't be able to do much more testing until 24-aurora.
