[PATCH RFC 0/5] fix build errors with gcc6

Hello Guido,

Looking at your patches, none of them seem to actually be build system 
changes, but rather code changes in various parts of the product. I 
believe patch 1 and 5 should go to core-libs-dev and the rest to 
hotspot-dev. For number 5, assuming the component team is ok with 
disabling -Werror, then since it's a makefile change, it's also good 
practice to include build-dev.
