800 KLOC deleted, wonderful!

The update to technology-summary.html page means its html title no 
longer matches the contents. We should probably change it to "JCP 
Technologies in JDK 11" for now.

The removal of test cases from the tests in tools/launcher/modules 
removes most of the test coverage for the upgrade module path. We'll 
need to replace these sub-tests. Can you create an issue to track that?

Everything else looks good and it's okay to track residual issues with 
other JIRA issues. I think the important thing is to get this monster 
patch into JDK builds soon so that libraries and the eco system can 
start to adjust.
