Yes, I'm referring to new directories I created under hotspot/src/os_cpu named bsd_ppc/vm. For both aix_ppc/vm and linux_ppc/vm there are 12 files which have ppc specific implementations/definitions such as atomic_aix_ppc.inline.hpp and atomic_linux_ppc.inline.hpp. I've added atomic_bsd_ppc.inline.hpp to the folders I've created and will base it off of the linux version.

I've been able to identify PPC boxes and in particular the 64 bit cpu (ppc970) and have gotten to the point where the build makes it into the hotspot project. Looking at the AIX hotspot code it appears that things are coded for the xlc compiler tool set whereas the Linux/PPC code appears to be coded for the gcc tool set.

Do you mean they use different assembler dialects? If so, you should stay with gcc one (i.e., Linux).
