Some more info: this may actually not be as deterministic as it seemed.

On an M1 chip (Mac Mini, the one I have direct access to), very occasionally I
can run “java” (no arguments) and see the usage message. But I can never do
that twice in a row, even if it works the first time, it crashes the second
one. I could never run a program (ranging in complexity from Hello World to
Jenkins), and I could never successfully launch javac.

Another person who kindly offered to test this, on a M1 Pro chip, has the
opposite problem: he can run java/javac (including Hello World and Jenkins)
most of the time, but occasionally it fails (same error as described here,
SIGILL on BufferBlob). I don’t have direct access to an M1 Pro (or any other M*
chip) so I can’t grab much data on those.
