The first three patches are needed to get native Hotspot to build on
Linux sparc. Without the patches, the builds bails out with compiler

So, should I just run the testsuite with all three patches applied?

The fourth patch just fixes Zero on Linux sparc. If I understand
correctly, Debian's openjdk packages always build the Zero VM even on
targets with a native Hotspot. And without the last patch, the Zero
build fails on Linux sparc.
