I hear this has been reported already, but I couldn't see anything
obvious in the archives for the various HotSpot lists.
The build of jdk8 (currently b64) fails on gcc 4.7. I'm not sure when
it exactly regressed, but a number of people have mentioned over the past week
or so.
The following webrev fixes the build (following GCC's advice):

If you've already committed something and it's in the pipes, feel
free to ignore this.  Otherwise, we could really do with this going in so people can
build OpenJDK8 again.
