Regression after my fix for 7079329: Adjust allocation prefetching for T4. The failure happened when VM runs on old Pentium III which does not have SSE2:

EVALUATION Changes in 7079329 (use MacroAssembler prefetch instructions in x86 .ad files) exposed typo in this assert, prefetchnta is supported since SSE not SSE2: void Assembler::prefetchnta(Address src) { NOT_LP64(assert(VM_Version::supports_sse2(), "must support"));
