8056124: Hotspot should use PICL interface to get cacheline size on SPARC
..is already backported to 8u. However in 9 that change removes some assertions in src/cpu/sparc/vm/vm_version_sparc.cpp, which are not removed in 8u, because they weren't there at the time.
Backporting 8049717 adds an assert in vm_version_sparc.cpp, which will trigger if we backport 8134119 into 8u.
This bug will remove them, and get 8u ready for a straightforward backport of 8134119.
