OK, here is the problem.

In order to get aarch64 work, the initial ODEBUG_POOL_SIZE on

64-CPU: need 2048
256-CPU: need 8192 (4096 too small)

This commit 97dd552eb23c

+ * Increase the thresholds for allocating and freeing objects
+ * according to the number of possible CPUs available in the system.
+ */
+ debug_objects_pool_size += num_possible_cpus() * 32;

Why magic number 32?

It needs to be bigger than that for aarch64.

(2048 + 64 x 32 - 1024) / 64 = 48 (work on 64-cpu)
(4096 + 256 x 32 - 1024) / 256 = 48 (not work on 256-cpu)
(8196 + 256 x 32 - 1024) / 256 = 60 (work on 256-cpu)
