I looked at the changes in the jdk repository and they look good to me too.
Adding the bit to the jdk_version_info structure is a neat way to deal
with the mis-match until hotspot and the JDK meet up in a promoted
build. Do you think this bit will be temporary or do you plan to remove
it once the changes have got into all releases?
On the test, I agree with Mandy that it would be good to have a test in
the jdk repository. I assume this will need to wait until HotSpot is in
a promoted build so it would need to be a follow-on changeset anyway.
