The GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) is finishing up the removal of Java / GCJ support ahead of next year's GCC 7 release.

At Phoronix we have previously reported on the dropping of GCC Java support for GCC 7 and with feature development ending, the rest of the GCJ / GCC Java support is being stripped out.

Today is this commit removing some lingering references to the GCC Java support. The commits today come after removing a lot more Java code back in September.

GCC 7 will be released in H1'2017 but Java isn't among the many improvements to be found in this next major release.
