The difference I see from the sh and x86 version is that we have this -4
on arm64, introduced by e306dfd06fcb as Will mentioned above (it seemed
to have caused more problems that it solved). I think we should revert
that commit first just to be in line with other architectures and then
apply additional fixes as needed.

Question for Li Bin: is your patch still needed if we revert commit
