      Description

        This change contains a lot of recent developments for ppc, mostly by SAP.
         - Recognition of Power 8 processors (by Tiago Daitx).
         - Support for more new Power 8 instructions.
         - Support for transactional memory. This is implemented but not yet tested
           thoroughly due to limitiations of the OS support. Not enabled.
         - java.lang.math.*Exact intrinsics
         - Some C2 optimizations and fixes:
           * Handling of flag registers. Some instructions would lead to uncompilable
             methods due to not allocatable register patterns.
           * Free some integer registers to use them for allocation. Handle compressed
             oops base as constant.
           * Unscaled class compression.
         - Type profiling fixes.
