May I please get a review of this straightforward backport from JDK 9 to
JDK 9 change sets:
JDK 9 review thread:
JDK 8 webrevs (for review):
The backport is almost line-for-line the same as the JDK 9 fix with the
- assertions / guarantees need to have their format strings wrapped with
- there is no need to "backout" of JDK-8140630 , which was never
backported to JDK 8 in the first place.
This fix is urgently needed for JDK 8 built with newer versions of GCC.
