Sure, I'll review/test it when I get a chance.
As a note to other reviewers, this patch adds a new "BUILD_LIBAV_STUBS"
flag to build.gradle to support building the libav stubs in support of
running on multiple Linux systems that may have different versions of
libav. Currently we only build these stubs when doing a closed build for
Oracle JDK. This patch moves this build logic into the open, and is the
last major  piece of closed build logic preventing open and closed
builds from being identical.
It would be helpful if someone outside Oracle could test this out on
Linux and let us know whether it works for you.
Alexander: can you add the information about the new flags(s) to JBS?
Also, one thing I just thought of is that the new flag(s) could be added
to gradle.properties.template for documentation.
 there is still some cleanup that needs to be done, but this is the
last big piece
