In support of JEP 212: Resolve Lint and Doclint Warnings 
(http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/212), which is targeted to JDK 9, please 
review the large but straightforward set of changes in the webrev:


Some background of the approach being taken to address this part of JEP 
212 was discussed on core-libs:


Briefly, to allow the deprecation warnings to be dealt with and that 
sole remaining lint warning category enabled in the build, a two-step 
approach is being taken. The first step is to suppress the deprecation 
warnings and the second step is for area-experts to examine the specific 
uses of deprecated APIs in their code. This webrev only attempts to 
cover the first step.

The webrev is based off of the JDK 9 "dev" forest rather than the 
"client" forest. Since the change only involves copyright updates and 
adding annotations, there would be no functional modification in the 
changeset. Therefore, I would strongly prefer to push these changes 
directly to dev rather than pushing them to client and waiting for them 
to propagate to dev to expedite the time when the build warning can be 
enabled. (If a warning is not enabled in the build, new instances of the 
warning tend to creep into the code base.)
