      Description

      OS and architecture names are used in system properties, JMOD files (ModuleTarget class file attributes) and JDK bundle names.

      OS names
         System property: "Linux", "Mac OS X", "SunOS", "Windows .*"
         JMOD file: "linux", "macos", "solaris", "windows"
         Bundle: "linux", "osx", "solaris", "windows"

      Architecture names
         System property: "i386" (linux), "x86" (windows), "amd64" (linux & windows), "x86_64" (macos), "sparcv9", "arm", "aarch64"
         JMOD file: "x86", "amd64", "sparcv9", "arm", "aarch64"
         Bundle: "x86", "x64", "sparcv9", "arm32", "arm64"

      These names should be revisited for consistency. See [1] for the discussion.
