Excessive rebuilds of modules

If I change a line of code in the java.base module, every Java module is 
rebuilt. However, my change does not change any of the APIs or the 
module info.

I think this means none of the other modules would be affected. If this 
is true, maybe we can modify the build system to check this and avoid 
the excessive rebuilds?
