Deprecate Oracle 8 on ARM

The current deprecation warnings are outdated. They refer to a situation lang ago on ARM32 (not ARM64) when there was a choice only between the unusable OpenJDK 8 and Oracle Java 8.

Now OpenJDK 9-11 come standard with distros like Debian Stretch. Those should be recommended.

My arguments against Oracle Java 8 on ARM 32:

  • Throws SIGILL and SIGSEV every couple of days with busy i2p
  • Much slower in my testing against OpenJDK 9.0.4 (built on machine) using Scimark2 and SpeedTest1
  • Built from closed source using unknown options and linked to unknown libraries
  • Cross-compiled using outdated beta tools (try objdump)
