In a local console

John Rose integrated Michael's webrev for integrating macosx-port intoi jdk8 into a patch that applies to hsx/hotspot-comp (along with the other MLVM patches).

When I looked into how to apply  Michael's webrev to jdk8/tl I couldn't see any easy way to download and apply the webrev.I can't scp the webrev. I couldn't find any instructions for how to download and apply a webrev for an "anonymous"user.

FYI: I do have a working account on -- I thought this used to be integrated into the openjdk ecosystem but apparently it isn't.
