Yes, you're right. We still have to figure out the best way of
exporting/hiding symbols on AIX. But with the current solution at
least the build works without fine without big changes and we have
placeholders for AIX-specific export files if we should need them in
Is it OK if I push this change (with the new BugID
https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8024900 created by Vladimir)
to the stage repository? As far as I can see, there are no closed
dependencies in this case.
