I need reviewers for these related bugs:

Enable unlimited cryptographic policy by default in OracleJDK

Add a crypto policy fallback in case Security Property
      'crypto.policy' does not exist


This change enables "unlimited" cryptographic policy by default in the 
OpenJDK/OracleJDK builds.

For those who still require the classic limited policy bundles, you will 
now need to use the following "configure" option:


There are still distributions that require crypto policy, so simply 
removing that code is not an option, sorry!
