Thanks for the review,

Since the root repo part of this change is quite urgent, I split out a 
new bug for the Hotspot part, which also might warrant more discussion.

I would guess that this won't be necessary however since hotspot won't be delivered to multiple jdk releases anymore?

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.
