    Description

      JEP 347 "Adopt C++14 Language Features in HotSpot" (JDK-8208089) will require that all compilers support the C++14 language extension. The first gcc version to fully support C++14 is 5.0. We need to raise the bar from 4.8 to 5.0.

      Since removing support for old compilers, especially gcc, can be tricky to handle for some on old and odd setups, I think it's best to do this as a separate step from the C++14 upgrade.

      On the way, this will allow us to remove some workarounds/close some bugs for really old gcc versions.
