With a few exceptions, the Windows specific code for jli.dll is in 
src/java.base/windows/native/libji so if it's not too difficult then I 
think that should be location for the Windows long path support. It's 
might be parse_manifest_md.c rather than java_md.c as the latter is the 
platform specific code to go with launcher code in java.c.
