Changes for JDK-8200303 added calls to log2f() math function and it hit 
problem building Hotspot on SPARC - it can't find this function.

For Hotspot build on Solaris we had hack to support old Solaris versions 
which did not have libm.so.2:


We don't support Solaris 8 and 9 anymore and it is safe to remove the hack.

Tested with tier1 Builds and Hotspot testing (similar to submit-hs).
