Hi Jaikiran,

this fix is definitely a good candidate for a backport to jdk8u.

What you should do now is to extract the patch and apply it to 8u. It'll probably need some reshuffling and further adaptations. Once you have it, please post an RFR webrev on this mailing list and add the jdk8u-fix-request label to the bug with a comment, referring to the mailing list's review thread.
