Thanks Vladimir,

I have a webrev out there. But I will probably have to wait for the
new jdk10 repo open next week.

Or maybe the hs repo is still open for something like this? and
you guys can help get it in directly there?


It appears the consensus is to put this one into the ProblemList and let 
hotspot folks to fix the test case.

issue: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8193479
webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~sherman/8193479/webrev

The corresponding hotspot/compiler issue filed: JDK-8193549.
