WEBREV @ http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~mduigou/7143162/1/webrev/
An updated version of my previous webrev. I'm reposting it because this version includes a previously missing bit from the top level sanity makefile that produce warning notices when demos and samples are turned off similar to the NO_DOCS javadoc warning. Also includes a correction in Release.gmk.
Overall this is fairly simple patch for review. It allows developers to shut off building of the jdk demos and samples. Disabling these builds has a very positive impact upon build turnaround for incremental builds. Export NO_DEMOS and/or NO_SAMPLES in your shell before running make and demos and/or samples will be skipped.
The default behaviour remains unchanged.
