I don't think that you need to backport #6726504 and #6730192. The first
was just a clean up and the second a bug fix for the cleanup (he writes
while eating humble pie).
As for the test case, I love it, but based on the channel in which the
test case was submitted, Sun does not have ownership rights to the code,
so I can't add it to OpenJDK. I am not a lawyer, but someone who is
should feel free to correct me.
