> This is not specific to any particular branch/version of WebKit. I was browsing the code with ppc64le porting in mind. By default JIT is not available on ppc64le, so the CLoop code is used instead.
> I see there is low level interpreter code in qtwebkit/Source/JavaScriptCore/llint directory and inside qtwebkit/Source/JavaScriptCore/interpreter directory (AbstractPC, CallFrame etc.). I am wondering if one needs to touch this code as well to make it work correctly on ppc64le.

Porting JIT to new platfrom does not require porting LLInt, it can work without interpreter tier. However, it is a good idea to port LLInt after you have JIT in place, to improve overall quality.
