The ppc and s390 ports are now part of OpenJDK for 3-4 releases. A great effort was taken to get all jtreg tests working.  

This change adds the few remaining issues to the ProblemsLists of jdk and hotspot after opening bugs for them.

As these tests all fail in jdk11, I would like to downport this to jdk11u.

Fix Request As all the tests problem-listed here also fail in jdk11, I would like to downport this. Unfortunately, this change does not apply cleanly. Mostly because the context of the hunks is different. Test serviceability/sa/TestClhsdbJstackLock.java and sun/tools/jhsdb/BasicLauncherTest.java were already listed as failing (on solaris) in jdk/jdk, but not in jdk11u. So I added these two and marked them failing on ppc only. The review thread is here: http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/jdk-updates-dev/2018-October/000218.html
