This is a bug in the EA build where they are qualified exports to 
jdk.management.resource but this module is not in the builds. So it's a 
build issue, I'll create a bug to track this.  If you build the JDK 
yourself, from the jigsaw/jake sources, then you won't run into this 
issue, it is specified to how the EA builds are created.

That said, I'm not 100% sure why javac runs into it here, I'm sure Jon 
or Jan can explain that.
