This is the "backport" to 9 as the original change had to go into 8u 
first for logistical/scheduling reasons.

Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8078470

8u changeset: 

Original review thread: 

The changeset mostly applied cleanly with some manual tweaking in one 
spot as the 9 code refers to AARCH64 where the 8u code does not.
