Thanks. It turned out that I needed to integrate this via jdk9-client 
instead of jdk9-dev, as usual, to support the upcoming build-infra work, 
and to avoid an unneccessary merge clash with the changes of Visual 
Studio 2012 in jdk9-client. That in turn means I had to drop the fixes 
to compare.sh, since they depended on the resolved merge conflicts that 
I pushed the other day to jdk9-dev (but which are not as of yet in 
jdk9-client). Phew. I'll return to the compare.sh fixes in a follow-up 
bug when everything that's relevant has been integrated everywhere. :)
