It's great to get to this milestone.

I looked over the webrev and I don't see any issues. I'm surprised by 
the number of tests that had @modules java.base/sun.misc even though 
they aren't using anything in sun.misc.

I see Phil has pushed JDK-8147544 to jdk9/client rather than jdk9/dev so 
it means that the module-info.java for java.desktop will need to be 
fixed up when it gets to jdk9/dev.

I think we should bump the priority of all the issues that cause you to 
add `requires jdk.unsupported`we should at least get all of them 
resolved by FC as we shouldn't have any standard modules with this
