The first review happened on the ppc-aix-port list (see this thread

The previous, related change mentioned by Sasha, which added support
for the ELFv2 ABi was https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8035647
It was already pushed to jdk9/hs-comp

@Sasha: you can remove the "LFLAGS_VM" settings from ppc64le.make
