[fixed subject, removed jfr-dev maillist]
In the meanwhile I’ve updated webrev with a backports of JDK-8207392 (JFR profiling for PPC) and shared part of (necessary for the latter) JDK-8159284

I think it would be cleaner to have multiple repositories: having to deal
with branches make things pointlessly difficult. Maybe we should give this
some structure with subdirectories, so jdk8u/incubator/jfr. The advantage
of this is that a casual visitor is less likely to be confused.
I like this proposal, it is future proof as it would make it clear also if we ever had to add more of such repositories what they are for.
