Technically even Mavericks, but really it's Xcode 5/6... I never backported my Xcode 5 changes to 8u. It was on my list for a while but never accomplished due to lack of time.
Is there interest in doing so? If so, I can try to find the time to scrape up a backport.
The final webrevs for JDK9 are still on CR:
They're also pre-Jigsaw M1 which means they might be easier to backport than what's current in JDK9.
