Please approve the backport of JDK-4858370 to JDK 8. The patch for
invoker.c is the same as for 9 (after path unshuffeling). Only the test
has some slight modifications in order to set the JVM options for the
debuggee since the test lib does not support the same things as in JDK
9. I'd need somebody to sponsor this change.
