I'm re-starting this review with the original proposed patch. This 
changes the required boot-JDK in configure from the set "9 10 or 11" to 
"10 or 11". It also changes what Oracle uses in its automated build 
environment setup from 9 GA to 10 GA.

I do this based on the proposal [1] to retain the historical N - 1 
boot-JDK policy, which has not met any objections yet.
