I've just filed a SubCR for 7103610 to have this fix back-ported to a 7
update release. As with any such back-porting, this may take some time.
Please stay tuned.
As to porting this fix to a 6 update release of OracleJDK, I'm not
really sure if this is possible at this stage w/o some serious
justification. 6 is an old release, and only fixes for very severe bugs
are acceptable for it.
However, I think there may be a possibility to port this fix to
OpenJDK6. I'm copying jdk6-dev at openjdk.java.net to clarify if the fix
 can be accepted. If OpenJDK6 folks agree, we'll file a SubCR for
this release and push the fix there.
