This is the updated webrev for Fences intrinsics [1]:

It includes the review fixes from Christian.

  - built and tested in Linux x86_64
  - java-concurrency-torture [2] Fences tests [3] are passing
  - JPRT passes on all platforms, with no regressions [*]

I think this patch is ready for the inclusion, and we need a sponsor for
it. Original JEP still needs to be pushed to "Funded" state in order to
get clearance for push though.

[*] There is a single unrelated failure, which is reproduced on clean
hotspot-comp build as well (langtools/DefaultMethodRegressionTests)
