The recent changes to convert warnings to errors didn't account for some 
type-punning warnings in our Embedded PPC build due to the use of 
strict-aliasing. Really we shouldn't be using strict-aliasing so this 
change (which for some reason is in the open flags.m4 file) brings ppc 
in-line with all other platforms and sets -fno-strict-aliasing

I will be pushing this to jdk9/dev as we need this fixed immediately.
