Hi Martin,
Just to add to Ichiroh's comments, if an AIX machine is configured with a 
default OS charset of IBM-964 or IBM-29626C, then the OpenJDK VM(Hotspot) 
will be unable to start as the VM initialization during the bootstrap 
phase will try to load the charset. Thus it must be in the java.base 
charsets, hence Ichiroh's changeset.
We are very keen to get these changes in, as we don't actually have an 
internal IBM AIX openjdk branch, our emphasis is very much in the "open". 
If you are able to help us achieve that goal, that would be very much 
appreciated please.
Many thanks
