I haven't studied the changes yet but I see you've updated 
I don't think you need the changes at L42-48, instead you can just "hg 
rm" the 32-bit libraries that are in 

You might want to bring the changes to serviceability-dev because of the 
change to the JDI launching connector and the JDI tests.
