Sorry for the tardy responses on OpenJDK 6 matters of late; I've been
caught up working on a flurry of Project Coin activities.

Yes, 6994130 has been in JDK 7 for a few builds so it can be backported
to OpenJDK 6.

The changes in 6668231 are approved for backporting.
For the javac changes, backporting 6638712 in and of itself would be
fine; however, backporting 6650759 would be problematic since it
implements a type-inference specification change in JDK 7. There are
differences between the type inference behavior of javac in OpenJDK 6
and the propriety JDK this issue is one of them. The inference
algorithm in OpenJDK 6 could be reworked a bit, but I don't expect the
javac team to have cycles for that task in the near future.

6963870 is approved for backporting.

Hmmm. Perhaps it is more prudent to disable compressed oops in OpenJDK
6 b21 and then enable them in a subsequent build after a sync with hs20.
