        Description

        We have to recompile the dtrace jhelper.o's which are SCCS'd in the HotSpot
        workspace. We should use the dtrace compiler from the Solaris build s10_73.

        The fix of the following Solaris bug breaks both forth and back compatibility for dtrace helpers:
          6178956: DIF integer constants need to be stored in a separate DOF section

        This is information from Michael Shapiro <###@###.###>:
        "My putback is a flag day for helpers. Only new helpers will work
        on this OS, and these new helpers won't work on previous beta builds.
        This will be the final such thing for Solaris 10. Going forward, we'll
        guarantee compatibility if we have to make changes like this."

        The fix of 6178956 is targetting the WOS build 73.
