Re-sending with the correct subject and adding the ppc-aix-port ML.

Could the following webrev be reviewed please?

webrev 1/2: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~gromero/8170873/v2/
webrev 2/2: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~gromero/8170873/v2/jdk/
bug       : https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8170873

It's a backport of 8170153:

8170153: PPC64/s390x/aarch64: Poor StrictMath performance due to non-optimized

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 [1] is
not planned to be backported.

I've tested the same way I did on 9 (jtreg) and no regression was observed [2].

I did not run against the JCK tests as performend by Martin [3]
since I'm still in the process of solving an issue related to the OCTLA.

Thank you.
