These are the revised versions of the webrevs:


(HotSpot is unchanged, dropped the sound changes from JDK)

The only other ppc64 block I found is specifically AIX/ppc64 to exclude
the serviceability agent:

make/gensrc/Gensrc-jdk.jdi.gmk:ifeq (, $(filter $(OPENJDK_TARGET_OS)-$(OPENJDK_TARGET_CPU), aix-ppc64))
make/Import.gmk:ifeq (, $(filter $(OPENJDK_TARGET_OS)-$(OPENJDK_TARGET_CPU), aix-ppc64))

Does AIX support ppc64le?
