update jffi and release version for JRuby 1.7 #5072
@DJRickyB Yes, in #4506 there's discussion about how to fix this better in jnr-ffi, but so far no patch from the contributor. It would likely require a rebuild of the native bits of jffi, which means there's a bit of a long tail in getting it released (we support some obscure platforms that would need rebuilds). But there's a solution out there.
Can you describe your application and how you're running it? There are some workarounds that may help.
