No hard reasons why JDK-8034057 is not in earlier updates. It probably 
boils down to resources. After all, JDK 9 is a mechanism for new bug 
fixes. Since this doesn't look like a compatibility change for older JDK 
families, I think it's suitable for porting. If you've got commit 
rights, you can go ahead and follow process for pushing to jdk8u-dev. 
Otherwise I or other colleagues can certainly assist in getting this fix 
into 8u-dev.
