        Description

        The new SPARC S7 scale-out line of processors are based on Core S4 (which SPARC T7/M7 processors are based on too) but are identified as SPARC-S7 via kstat's "implementation" attribute. HotSpot should recognize this line of processors as a new family, e.g. S_family and initialize JVM optimizations/ergo flags appropriately.
