[OpenJDK 2D-Dev] RFR: Bug Pending: Build fails to compile jchuff.c

Last week I openend JDK-8200052 and posted it to 2d-dev for RFR.
Me included we have two reviewers and the tier1 tests ran through. Are
there really any serious objections against pushing this tiny fix? It would
make life for us (working on zLinux) easier.
I will wait for 24 more hours until a reaction. If no serious objections
are forthcoming, I will push it.
