      Description

      A long time ago in a galaxy far far away...

      Sun's developer toolset used to be called SPARCworks or sparcWorks or...

      This name is used in the HotSpot source base (makefiles, #ifdef's,
      filenames, etc) and during the recent code review of the fix for
      the following bug:

         6452081 3/4 Allow for Linux builds with Sun Studio Linux compilers

      this name stuck out as being odd/confusing/anachronistic...

      Here are the relevant comments I made during the code review:

      src/os_cpu/linux_x86/vm/bytes_linux_x86.inline.hpp
         It is a bit odd to see "line 63 #ifdef SPARC_WORKS" inside
         "line 61 #ifdef AMD64".


      src/os_cpu/linux_x86/vm/os_linux_x86.cpp
         It is a bit odd to see "#ifdef SPARC_WORKS" inside an x86
         specific file.

      src/share/vm/utilities/globalDefinitions_sparcWorks.hpp
         This file has "sparcWorks" in the name, but has stuff for
         other processors. Definitely a naming problem here. :-)

      See the comments for a detailed list of files.
