support for Solaris SPARC < 11

The Solaris 10 end of support date looks like 2018-2021, which certainly is after the JDK 9 expected release date, isn't it?  Therefore, I would think Solaris 10 should be supported by JDK 9.

Subject: support for Solaris SPARC < 11


I'm currently working on JBS bug JDK-8043913 

Problem: remove legacy code in SPARC's VM_Version::platform_features

Do you or are you aware of anyone who still needs need to run or support 
Solaris SPARC < 11? I would need this information to fix the bug.

Thank you and best regards,
