jdk.scripting.nashorn is loaded by the extension class loader.  Is jdk.dynalink expected to be loaded by the ext. class loader?

You need to edit this file to include the new module:

This is an interim file to map modules to class loader and we will fix it when the changeset propagates to jake.

> jdk.dynalink  should be in MAIN_MODULES since it has exported APIs.  jdk.scripting.nashorn should be moved too.  They are not sole service providers.  Since you are on this file, can you move jdk.scripting.nashorn to MAIN_MODULES as well?
