To maintain compatibility with Apple JDKs, a proposal will be made to
change the 'os.arch' system property from 'amd64' to 'x86_64' on Mac OS
X. Minor changes are required to the following repositories, for which
I've provided webrevs...
JPRT job (2012-02-20-203901.jmelvin.hotspot)
Notepad, SwingSet2, SPECjbb2005
This change will also impact a small number of internal tests and RE
scripts. The bundle names will also reflect the change amd64 -> x86_64.
HotSpot changes can be integrated first, with the JDK changes in the
following promotion. Should the proposal be rejected for 7u4, I
obviously withdraw the bugfix.
