I am sympathetic to those who are affected, but all these questions are 
putting us in an impossible position
since you are asking the wrong people. The development engineers are not 
the 11u maintainers.
Someone who is in a position to sponsor the change needs to ask  the 11u 
maintainers if they will accept a request
So I cannot do that on your behalf. If they say yes, then that someone 
who asked then needs to fix it.

But 11.0.2 is baked. So I don't want to get your hopes up for that.

And not that it applies to contributors such as you, I need to point out 
so others understand that these email
lists are for people creating fixes for the main jdk development line, 
and not any kind of support channel.
We love getting bug reports, and even better, contributed fixes, but it 
is all for the main development line, not for older trains.
