For details, see the blog:

With this change, if --enable-zero is passed to configure, it will use our
existing support to switch to the HotSpot tree from the 2.1
branch (i.e. the last buildable version, where the ARM work is going on).

I hope this should enable us to support Zero without having to maintain
the whole of 2.1 (i.e. CORBA, JDK, etc.) indefinitely.
