Could someone please sponsor the following webrev and push it through JPRT
JIRA issue: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8140238
Zero fails to build after
8136421: JEP 243: Java-Level JVM Compiler Interface
The commit for 8136421 updated headers etc for _sparc, _x86, _ppr and _aarch64 but failed to update _zero.
8078554: Compiler: implement ranges (optionally constraints) for those flags that have them missing
The commit for 8078554 causes zero to generate an error about AllocatePrefetchDistance having the value -1 so I have set this to 0 in vm_version_zero.cpp.
I have posted this to hotspot-compiler rather than build-dev because it is only in the hs-comp tree at the moment and because the build was broken by the commits for the above issues.
Thanks for your help,
