8067923: AIX: link libjvm.so with -bernotok to detect missing symbols at build time and suppress warning 1540-1639

can somebody please review this tiny, AIX-only build changes:


'-bernotok' is the AIX linkers equivalent to Linux ld's '-z defs'.

It's better to detect missing symbols already at build time.

Also supress the warning "1540-1639 (I) The behavior of long type bit
fields has changed from previous releases of this compiler. In 64-bit
mode, long type bit fields now default to long, not int."

The warning is only informational (i.e. "(I)") but very annoying
because it is printed for the bit-fields in
"src/share/vm/services/mallocTracker.hpp" which is included in
virtually every compilation unit.
