[webkit-dev] CSS Parse error in <link rel> element.

@Konstantin thanks for the suggestions. I disabled CSS JIT on x85 but there
was no negative impact on the results on x86. So I guess the issue is a
genuine ppc64le problem. I have picked up the starting points mentioned in
this thread earlier and debugging the issue. I have also isolated the issue
to a single CSS file which is causing the problem. Now I am trying to
isolate the exact entry in the CSS file which is causing the trouble.
