I'd like approval to implement the following enhancement in jdk8u-dev :

https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8157561 : Ship the unlimited 
policy files in JDK Updates

This feature will allow end users to control the location of the default 
JCE policy jurisdiction files. It uses the same new Security Property 
flag as that introduced into JDK 9 via JDK-8061842. The code differs 
though in that jar files continue to be used and backwards compatibility 
is maintained. The feature will greatly simplify how unlimited crypto 
gets enabled in the JDK.
