Zero and native support on linux-ia64

I am currently playing around with OpenJDK Zero on ia64 and notice that there
is some ia64-specific code left at least in OpenJDK 8 which was subsequently
removed in later versions.

So, I am wondering, did OpenJDK have native support for ia64 at some point or
was this all needed for Zero? I know that ia64 has some weird peculiarities
and was wondering whether it's still possible to build Zero here.

I'm not interested in a native port, I just want to keep Zero as portable
as possible and we just recently got an old HP Itanium blade to fool
around with, so I naturally tried to build Zero there :-).
