Hi folks,

Please help review the fix for JDK-7194370,,(fs) WatchService fails if 
volume S/N is 0 [win]. The webrev is uploaded at,

The issue is because we have an assumption that volumn serial number 
cannot be 0.The serial number is 32-bit number determined by the date on 
the currentcomputer at the time of a disk's formatting. It is very rare 
for a volumnto be assigned a serial number as 0000-0000. But it could 
happen. The fix is to remove non-zero assertions.Thanks!
