Okay.  I am certain that the integration of this port into HotSpot
mainline will be a lot easier than your PowerPC/AIX was: the number
of non-trivial changes is nearly zero.

[By a trivial change I mean '#ifdef AARCH64  #include <aarch64-defs.h>"
or adding "|| defined(AARCH64)" to some existing code.  Barring typos,
these cannot affect existing code.]

If it's necessary to produce webrevs to get in-principle approval of
the JEP, I will do so.
