I think the recent investigation by Alexey Varlamov has shown that this 
file is not used when you use DRLVM because it supplies its own 
threading library. It is probably used when running J9, but there is no 
64-bit version of J9 yes.

So you can probably just remove all assembly code and create a C stub 
with needed symbols just to make the linker happy.
