Hi folks,

as nothing has substantially moved towards approval of the patch [1] and 
the corresponding CSR [2], let's split the issue into its constituents.

The CSR is currently finalized and needs a further review for approval. 
This requires much less time than a review of the implementation [1].

The CSR has been carefully written to match the observed behavior of the 
current OpenJDK 12 as close as possible while aiming at being more clear 
and 100% rigorous. It can be approved independently of the underlying 

So please review and approve the CSR [2], regardless of the proposed 
improved implementation [1], which can be tackled later.
