> sun.misc.GC is not "Critical APIs", as defined by JEP 260, so should
> be moved out of sun.misc and placed into a more appropriate package,
> where it can be encapsulated.
> Since GC is only used by RMI, I proposed to move it to the java.rmi
> module. Since it has a native component, and no other code in java.rmi
> has, then a new small native library is required.
