Because changes will probably be applied to 8u, I was (overly) careful to
preserve exact exception forms. But I don't think there is a reason
to do so for jdk9, so we might want to look into this after the rest
of VarHandles stablilize, possibly needing an uninteresting CCC change
to allow uninterestingly different exceptions.
