How does this work?  Is it that changes are pushed to hs-comp (by
JPRT?) tested, and then manually merged at some point in the future?

I'm thinking about the workflow.  It's now Apr 22, and the patch
"Intrinsify ByteBuffer.put" went into hs-comp on Mar 31.  This seems
like a very long time to wait while developing.  It's particularly
awkward if we have a bug which breaks the build.

I'm not asking for anything to be changed, just trying to understand
how I (and other external contributors) should best interact with the
HotSpot workflow.
