sun.misc.VM provides a low-level interface for a small number
of specific operations with the VM. In preparation for JEP 260,
this class should be moved out of sun.misc and located in a
non-exported package [.


Note: as in other areas some tests that require access to
internal APIs have been updated to use types from a more
stable package, sun.security.x509.
