No problem. I'm still a relatively new to OpenJDK development, that's why I need these heads-ups ;).

Ok, thanks!

"make check" doesn't work :(.

FWIW, I also talked to Oracle's toolchain guy for Linux SPARC and he told me, the memset
implementation in glibc has the same problem on Linux. So, your reservations are actually
justified and we should use the SPARC version of memset_with_concurrent_readers on Zero
on SPARC as well.

The problem is just how to make the code available outside the cpu/sparc tree.
