To see the issue then you'll need a build of jdk8/tl rather than
jdk8/jdk8 as the changes haven't been integrated into the master yet. We
really need to get to the point where the entire JDK is built with
-Xlint:serial -Werror as it's too easy to inadvertently change the SUID.
Aside from a few specified tests, the tests in the jdk repository don't
test serialization compatibility.
