The original change affects s390x and aarch64 as well but since both
architectures are not present on 8u both were excluded from this new webrev
turning it, in effect, a ppc-only fix on 8u.
I understand that that change is particularly important to PPC64 since  is
not planned to be backported.
I've tested the same way I did on 9 (jtreg) and no regression was observed .
I did not run against the JCK tests as performend by Martin 
since I'm still in the process of solving an issue related to the OCTLA.
