It's very strange.  I've only seen it with my memory attribution patch
applied, in asm_fast.par.gc and hlc.par.gc grades (note: no profiling).
The abort is triggered by this line in MR_process_environment_options:


My patch doesn't touch anything so early in the runtime initialisation.
It bootchecks in all non-.par grades that I've tested.
It also bootchecks in .par grades, if I revert the HBLKSIZE change.
