Well, it'll still have to be backported to the 7u repositories, but
yes, I see what you mean; it will no doubt just get included in one
of the bulk updates by default. But that's a long way off and I see
no harm in making Zero work in the meantime.
Has it been run on a completely AArch64 system yet? I'm wondering if
any minor JDK issues might come up once a full build is done purely
on AArch64 without the emulator.
