Description
The sanity checks for jdk7 builds on solaris allow use of Sun Studio 12 (SS12) or Sun Studio 12 update 1 (SS12u1).  jdk7-b108 and later require SS12u1, so the sanity checks should be updated.

EVALUATION

The fix for 6951319 enabled building hotspot with Sun Studio 12 update 1 + patches, and relaxed the sanity checks to allow a transition period.  The transition period is over.
