Sorry about that. You should have received some form of notification.

You would have to keep the local copy of your source code patched and 
produce your own builds. But if you also try to update with the mainline 
OpenJDK code then you will very soon hit problems. In fact I'd be very 
surprised if this works today, even if it builds, as we have not 
provided any updates to ARM32 in a long time. The only supported way to 
run on ARM32 is using the Zero interpreter as Adrian replied.

Assume Multi-Processor.

When running on a MP system the VM has to use and generate code that 
provides the correct level of atomicity and memory consistency - none of 
which is necessary on a uniprocessor system. MP systems are the norm and 
in the rare case we issue the additional memory synchronization 
instructions they should be no-ops on a uniprocessor, so we are heading 
towards stripping out uniprocessor support and only build in MP support 
so that we don't need dynamic checks through the code to see if we are 
MP or not. Switching AssumeMP to true was the first step in that process 
(and avoided problems where the VM may be started with only one 
processor available but then had additional ones added later.)

In any case there has never been any support for ARMv5 multiprocessors.

Cheers,
David
