You need what I normally call the "hybrid javac", what you call
"bootstrap javac" which is latest code compiled to run on boot jdk.
That is enough to compile the base module, with a ZeroMod module resolver.
I would think you would run these classes in /legacy/ mode to get to an
initial module image.
Hopefully, javac is the only part of the system that needs to be built
twice, i.e. the same as is the case now.
