I don't know how often jdk9/client integrates into jdk9/dev but it doesn't seem to be very frequent (hg incoming suggests there is currently about a month of changes backed up in jdk9/client but there may be issues to explain this).

Clearly if there were substantive changes then it would be important to push the changes to the forest where they are most likely to get tested but it hardly seems worth it here. From what I can tell then Phil or others sync up jdk9/client regularly and that might be the most efficient way to get these changes into jdk9/client.

IIUC these were the reasons you gave in a previous email on this thread:
"I would not push hotspot changes to client either. Also lots of files
are being updated in client and doing it this way will minimise merges ..."
I don't find either very convincing.

Why does it take so long?
