The java launcher supports the options -d32 and -d64, primarily to
allow the user to choose and launch 32bit or 64bit JRE, in a
Solaris dual mode. However, since jdk8, the only supported configuration for
Solaris is 64bit .

Therefore, Is there a need for the launcher to support them  ? If so
please let me know, as soon as possible, otherwise I will plan on removing
the support for these options in jdk9.
