Code reviews don't go to jdk9-dev. Build-infra is not relevant to this
either. You only need hotspot-dev for a hotspot build issue (though
build-dev might be useful for more complex changes).

I'm always wary of things that might be shell specific:
vm.def: $(Res_Files) $(Obj_Files)
! NM=$(NM) sh $(GAMMADIR)/make/linux/makefiles/build_vm_def.sh
*.o > $@
I use this style of shell script invocation a lot from bash, where it
works, but I was under the impression not all shells support it.
