java.awt event processing performance degradation on JRE7 - linux

Federico's patch solves the performance regression (see:
). But instead of this patch I find better to change the PlatformLogger
class: insert "if(!isLoggable(level)) return;" at the beginning of the
method sun.util.logging.PlatformLogger.JavaLogger.doLog(int level,
String msg, Object... params) . The string convertion affecting the
performance is done on the PlatformLogger.JavaLogger.doLog (even when
the message is not loggable) and it is there where the problem should be
fixed (to be more clear and also cover more use cases). Fixing it there
also clears why the performance regression does not happen when
redirectPlatformLoggers has not been called (when logging is not used):
PlatformLogger.LoggerProxy.doLog(int level, String msg, Object...
params) does not do the string convertion when the message is not
Federico's patch has already been pushed to the jdk8 repository, when
will it be applied to jdk7 (or my propossed change if it is preferred)?
