The "profiles" make target on JDK 8 (and JDK 9 before yesterday) always 
included localedata.jar in the images. I would expect this would be 
pruned or removed before deploying to an embedded device of course, same 
thing for the security providers that get included by default.

We've now moved to world where the runtime images are created from a set 
of modules and this should give a lot of flexibility once. We're just 
not there yet with locale data so we have to temporarily link in the big 
jdk.localedata module so that the profiles images have all locales.
