Yeah. Watch me don't care about the strictness on linux-ppc. ;-)

When I tested locally, -Wno-unused-parameters where not needed on my 
system either (linux-x64). So it's possible it's become outdated. So 
just for completeness, I opened 
https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8081694 to track this, 
suggesting that the warning disabling should be removed.
