HotSpot 16: Status

Following my recent patches, I believe we now have HotSpot 16 working
for normal builds, Zero builds and Shark builds (fingers crossed).
Thanks to doko for reporting issues.

Before we consider making it the default, I'd be interesting to know
if it works with:

* Ed's ARM port
* Zero on other platforms (ARM, PPC)

Gary, Ed, Xerces; could you take a look when you get chance?  Unlike
the Zero and Shark failures, we don't have a 'get out of jail free'
card for the ARM port by backporting fixes from IcedTea7!

I'd personally like it to be the default before we ship a new release.
