How to push security fixes for non-Oracle platforms after CPU fixes?

today, after the release of 8u31 you've pushed the corresponding
security fixes to jdk8u40 (see

We have a change which fixes "8050807: Better performing performance
data handling" on AIX. We had already send this fix to Oracle trough
our licensee channel, however if was too late to get it into the 8u31.
Therefore it's now missing from 8u40.

What's the best way of getting this as fast as possible into 8u40 and
the other 8u repos (8udev, 8u60). As far as I know, changes usually
flow from jdk9/dev -> jdk8u/dev -> jdk8u/jdk8u40. But in this case
it's different, because 8050807 hasn't yet been pushed to jdk9.

Can I just send a RFR to the jdk8u-dev list and push it right to 8u40
myself once I get the approval? It's a hotspot change, but it's
already reviewed, I'm a jdk8u committer and the change only touches
aix-specific files?

Thank you and best regards,
