That macro is only used by hotspot - there's no single reference to it
outside the hotspot for JDK8 and JDK9. 

I see it being defined in jdk/make/common/Defs-linux.gmk for IcedTea 2.5
(JDK7) and since it is also defined by
hotspot/make/linux/makefiles/ppc64.make I believe it is not actually
required in Defs-linux.gmk (haven't tried to build without it though).
