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

Given that 8u40 is now in the RDP2 state, we're following the phase 2 
integration process :

Only maintainers/gatekeepers should integrate to the stabilization forests.

For now, I suggest you proceed to get this fixed in 8u60 
( via the standard hotspot 
integration process. Alejandro (cc'ed) can then help to get this 
requested for inclusion into 8u40 once it's in 8u60 and has had nightly 
testing run etc. 8050807 is now also in JDK 9 forest so you can work on 
both in tandem I guess.
