No problem :)

I will test this out later today - the patches will probably require
some tweaking. Do you have any ideas on how you plan to maintain the
icedtea8 forest/repo? I recall that before OpenJDK7 was released, you
would periodically merge (is 'merge' the right word here?) the IcedTea6
changes into IcedTea7. Do you plan to do something similar here. Or
should we try to add fixes to all repositories/release branches?

I did massage the patches enough so they would apply to IcedTea7, but I
don't think I changed what the end result of applying the series of
patches was. I will post another patch to update NEWS and do some
I have pushed the changesets.
