There is no longer a separate hotspot version in jdk9 (see attached 
email for details),
so the version string produced by java -version and java 
-Xinternalversion in jdk9 builds
will be changed to match that of the JDK (as was the case before Hotspot

The details of this change are described here:


a webrev with the fix will be sent soon.
Let me know if you have any feedback/suggestion
