I would like to ask for help to review the following change/update:
Note 1. SPARC Core C5 disclosure has been approved for reviewing on this
Note 2. SPARC Core C5 and M8 servers are currently not available to
Note 3. Core C5 was previously named Core S5.
8182279: Add HW feature detection support for SPARC Core C5 (on Solaris).
Updating SPARC feature/capability detection to include support for
the SPARC Core C5.
This update will introduce some redundancies into the code base,
features and definitions
currently not used, addressed by subsequent bug or feature
updates/patches. Fujitsu HW is
treated very conservatively.
Mostly tested on JDK9 (jtreg/RBT/hotspot/tier0-comp), RBT on non-M8
Testing on JDK10 (jtreg/RBT/hotspot/precheckin-comp), RBT on non-M8
