Need reviewer: OpenJDK7 Copyright year updates

These changes are only adding the year 2010, to the copyright for  
files modified in 2010.
The "first" year should be preserved.

The pattern "YEAR1, YEAR2," in the Oracle copyright line is the  
equivalent of the old Sun
copyright year range "YEAR1-YEAR2".
So if the file originally was created in 1995, and was last modified  
in 2010, it should say "1995, 2010,".

Not sure I understand your question. Rebranding sources isn't  
something that generates too many smiles. :^(
