As soon as we can do a jdk7 boot cycle build again, I plan on changing
the default build to include a boot cycle build
(where the jdk7 image is built, then used as the boot jdk to build
I consider it critical that boot cycle builds work, and I see
no other course than requiring it as part of a default jdk7 build.
It can be turned off with SKIP_BOOT_CYCLE=true, but I hope the
integrators and everyone will be careful when it is turned off.
Depending on your build situation, this could add 20-30 minutes
(maybe more) to your jdk7 build, which is painful I know, but
so is finding out that the jdk you just built doesn't work.
Comments are welcome.
