Yes.  .S files are source that must be preprocessed.

I haven't yet had time.  I need to collect together everything for
upstream and start doing builds for up-to-date HotSpot.  However, AIUI
Zero doesn't build on up-to-date HotSpot, and I think we should get it
working and then push the fixes.  I don't think there's anything to be
gained by pushing fixes to old HotSpot branches upstream.
