JDK 8u40 is already released. Did you mean 8u60?

To get a backport in 8u60 means you need to get approval according to

If the backport does not apply cleanly (which I suspect in this case), 
then you also need a review from the build team.

As I understand, 8u60 is already feature complete, and this change in 
question is quite intrusive. I would not recommend backporting it to 
8u60 at this point.
