Only some PPC processors have a sqrt instruction.
Currently, intrinsic for dsqrt is used if a corresponding rule is implemented in the .ad file (has_match_rule()).
Instead, call match_ruole_supported(), which allows to check processor properties.
Also adapt PPC64 .ad file to this.
Please review and test this change
It also needs to go to jdk8u via ppc-aix-port/stage.
