This is great work as this is a mega merge.
Just on logistics, I believe you plan to push this to jdk8/tl and let is
stabilize there for a bit - is that right? This might have some
temporary impact on folks that normally hang out in jdk8/awt and other
client watering holes and maybe they will need to temporarily work from
a clone of jdk8/tl. Also what is the approximate timing on all this?
As regards the webrev then I did a first pass. There's way too much to
do a detailed review but I think that's okay because we've been over
these changes a few times. The only mis-merge that I see is the fdlibm
code. Joe Darcy removed a lot of unused code in jdk8 some time ago and
it looks like this merge has brought this code back. It also looks like
the ProblemList (exclude) changes didn't come over and we are going to
need these in order to have clean test runs. Otherwise I don't see
anything obvious with the merge.
