Funnily enough, being the original author of this one, I was just
about to file a bug for it in the new OpenJDK bug database when I saw
this mail.  The patch went into OpenJDK6 a while ago but never reached
OpenJDK7.  As a result, we've been applying it to IcedTea7's builds of
JDK7 all this time, so I can confirm that it does still apply fine :)

It would be great to see it in JDK7 proper.  Same goes for the
IMPORT_BINARY_PLUGS stuff while you're at it... ;)
