Hi Alejandro,

we (SAP) would appreciate if you avoid bulk integrations as far as possible.
For our internal VM (not the ppc port) we consume jdk8, then jdk8u20 and only
much later jdk9.  Thus we have to sort out the changes that appear several times, 
but fix the differences between them.  Bulk integrations complicate this a lot.

Thanks and best regards,

Requesting approval to integrate hs25.20-b02 into jdk8u20-b01.

A webrev is available at:


Pre-integration testing is in progress; the integration will proceed
only after SQE has analyzed the results and approved.

The fixes in the proposed integration are below.  All have undergone
nightly testing and are already in a jdk9 repository.

8027454: Do not traverse string table during G1 remark when treating them as strong roots during initial mark
8027455: Improve symbol table scan times during gc pauses
8027476: Improve performance of Stringtable unlink
