As Jon put it, for the classes in the base module, "we are delicate 
bootstrapping ground" so if you add something like "private static 
native void dummy()" rather than the annotation to the classes in the 
base module then it could be a solution for the short term. This means 
the following sources in the webrev:


Also it would be good to remove it from 
src/share/classes/sun/nio/ch/ too (it got the annotation in 
the first round).
