I looked at the change and tested it on our linux ppc64 and on aix.
I also tested it with the stage repo, that works fine, too.
Vladimir, can you push it to both, jdk9 and stage?
Sasha, I added parts of your Mail to the bug description:

Looks fine to me.
If ppc64 community is okay with this I can push it.
I saw discussion on ppc-aix alias but I need their comments on hotspot-dev.
For Hotspot-dev, Alexander can contribute a code into open jdk because
he is under Google's umbrella 'Oracle Contribution Agreement'.
