Hello, please review the following change .

Recently,  https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8230505

  replaced  a lot of  JVM conditionals compares against T_OBJECT and T_ARRAY   ( for readability and future extendability )  with a call to

is_reference_type .

However   the change  8230505    did not  change  the calls  in src/hotspot/cpu/ppc   and  src/hotspot/cpu/s390  .
My change  adjusts the remaining calls  in the  ppc / s390  coding .

Bug/webrev :



Thanks, Matthias
