click on the (tiny) "7" in "Source code / Mercurial (6, 7)" from the left-hand navigation panel. That gets me to the JDK Master forest. I add "/hotspot" to that URL to get to the root of the HotSpot tree. Then I click on the "manifest" for the
change (or tag, or branch). That gets me to a page where I can rummage around in what I think of as "the HotSpot sources. E.g., the current one is

A bit of history: the OpenGrok instance was running on a private web site registered by Tom Marble. I assume he's let it expire. The plan was always to run an OpenGrok instance on openjdk.java.net, but I don't think that's moved beyond the "plan" stage, and the plan may have changed.
