Testing and integration for the M5 build of 8u20 is done. As such, 
8u-dev is open again for 8u40 changes. We are back to normal rules for 
pushing to 8u-dev.

An 8u20 stabilization forest will be forked from 8u20-b20 shortly, so at 
this point it will take JDK 8u20 release team approval to get anything 
else into 8u20.
