I was also asking myself the same and this is the answer that comes
from reading the code and inspecting the branches. In 2.6.0, there is
only one tarball for hotspot: all the aarch64 changes are integrated
in the icedtea7-forest/hotspot. Since Ed's arm32 micro-jit is
integrated there too and since the arm32 build correctly with that
tarball and the micro-jit, IMHO, instead of backporting patches to the
hotspot tarball that is used for other architectures, Andrew simply
decided to use the one that has the relevant patches already integrated.
That is my reading of
