Any testing?  (and except for that issue, I, a non-Reviewer, approve)

Some of the usages of the swap method pass a const argument, and when compiling with gcc the const-ness mismatch means the method cannot be resolved which in turn means a compilation error. This is for jdk7u (only) - the relevant code has been rewritten in jdk8+ to no longer have this problem.
