Please review this patch which fixes the verify-modules target when
running bootcycle build, and also reenables verify-modules when running
There were two problems:
* The bootcycle build configuration was broken so that both the normal
and the bootcycle build used the same HOTSPOT_DIST directory. The
consequence of this was that verify-modules worked when run on its own,
but not if bootcycle-images had been run before. This is fixed in
* Since javac in JDK 9 no longer emits classes for implicitly compiled
sources, certain classes in sa-jdi.jar were not compiled during the
bootcycle build. I fixed this by adding the missing classes to sa.files.
Not having the classes there might have been intentional (in at least
some cases), but since they were compiled anyway, I felt it safer to
just add them to the list to fix this issue. If these classes shouldn't
be included, then they need to be properly removed in a followup fix.
Since this is changing hotspot, I assume it will need to go in through a
hotspot forest. Which one?
