JBS Issue:

Some time ago, a long LONG time ago as apparently this pre-dates even JDK 5, the plugin needed these functions for systems that used X11. They are no longer needed even though deploy code still resolves the symbols and has stub functions to call them (will be handled internally). I tripped over this corpse in the process of working on JDK-8003900. I tagged it noreg-cleanup since it's just removing dead code.

I don't know if anyone outside of Oracle uses these functions, but it seems highly unlikely to me.


I will also need a sponsor who can push for me.
