Please review these changes to make/jprt.poperties and
hotspot/make/jprt.properties. I've just added a jdk9 configuration to
JPRT and this change is needed for JDK 9 to start using it. This will
solve the issue of requiring a jdk8 boot when building in JPRT.
In the hotspot version of the file, there is a lot of separate
configuration for jdk7 and jdk8. I didn't dare touch this now and opted
to just add the jdk9 version of these variables. I would guess that this
won't be necessary however since hotspot won't be delivered to multiple
jdk releases anymore?
I'm still unclear on where the hotspot change needs to go and if I need
a separate bug for it? My interpretation is that the root repo change
should go to jdk9/dev and the hotspot change to jdk9/hs-rt and that
since these changes are using separate routes, a separate bug should be
used. I also assume that as a jdk9 reviewer, I will be able to push this
myself (after review) to the hotspot repo.
