Time to rebase on top of JDK 9 repository?

I tried this but there's quite a lot of compile errors from constructs that were legal in C++11 but are not in C++14 that have been cleaned in the jdk9 already. For example many macros get interpreted as user-defined literals.
So the merge to get these is needed.

I’m not sure what exactly would be sufficient, but biggest problems are with reorganized C/C++ files in jdk9/hotspot and jdk9/jdk repositories. I also have small changes to autoconf templates in the root jdk9 repository. They are easy enough to add if the build is otherwise functional.   


I could try with only the build changes included to see how far it goes.

See, I have made the needed changes and have a working build but I made the changes on top of the jdk9/jdk9 repository. I tried bringing the changes over to the valhalla/valhalla repository but the valhalla repository seems to be several months behind the JDK 9 repositories. There’s quite a lot of changes missing. Is it time to merge in the latest JDK 9 changes?

Yep - I agree it's time to merge - it's on my radar; as a short-term    

measure, is there any specific changeset you need pushed in order to get    

up and running with VS2015?
