Hi Thomas,

thanks a lot for doing all these changes.
Looks good now.

Could you add the change comment to the patch before you
Make a webrev next time?  Simplifies sponsoring ;)

Best regards,

Hi Thomas,

I looked at your change.  It’s good we get these improvements into
openJDK.  But I think we should skip some stuff that's not (yet?)
used there.  I'll sponsor the change. Details:


What do you need
static fun_perfstat_partition_total_t g_fun_perfstat_partition_total = NULL;
static fun_perfstat_wpar_total_t    g_fun_perfstat_wpar_total = NULL;
static fun_wpar_getcid_t            g_fun_wpar_getcid = NULL;
for? I think they are never used.

They are now used (for the respective wrapper functions which in turn are used in os_aix.cpp. Sorry for omitting this code.

We support AIX 5.3 with xlC12 only. I think we need not add the older
#defines to openJDK. Also, the comment should be adapted and not mention xlc8 etc.
Also, there are datastructures for 5.2 which can be removed.

Removed the older defines.
I would for now prefer to leave the AIX 5.2 data structures in this file. I am not sure if we could encounter older libperfstat versions on AIX 5.3 too. I plan to rework this coding to get rid of the duplicate structure definitions, but would prefer to do this in a separate patch.

Where is this used?
bool libperfstat::get_wparinfo(wparinfo_t* pwi)
Do we need it if it's not used?

It is now used :) in os_aix.cpp.

I would remove these prototypes commented out.

I removed them.

Why do you do these changes? Please revert them.

I reverted them.

What's this good for?

I removed those prototypes.

What's this good for?

I removed this prototype.

Why do you move query_multipage_support()?

I moved this back to its original position.

Why do you reverse the order of the functions here?
The old order is the same as in the related files os_linux.inline.hpp etc.

I reversed the order back to original order.

Best regards,

Kind Regards, Thomas
