I don't really think hotspot cares which direction the ABI stack grows. It only cares what direction the expression stack grows and that's only for frame code that it was walking over the contents of the expression stack.. I was assuming that the expression stack would follow the ABI but I guess there's no reason it must. It's just the responsibility of the C++ intepreter to deal with that properly. It would be nice to know what exact problem led to the initial conclusion that direction of stack growth was the problem.
