The fix for 8062672 [1] has been pushed to 7u80 and 8u60 but the patch 
get a small conflict when applied to 9. A bugfix only present in 9 
changed one of the patched lines, but the conflict is easy to solve. A 
diff between the original patch (present in 7 and 8) and the resolved 
one shows only this diff:
 > --- a/src/os_cpu/linux_sparc/vm/vm_version_linux_sparc.cpp
 > +++ b/src/os_cpu/linux_sparc/vm/vm_version_linux_sparc.cpp
< -    if (fscanf(fp, "cpu\t\t: %100[^\n]", &cpu) == 1) {
 > -    if (fscanf(fp, "cpu\t\t: %100[^\n]", cpu) == 1) {
