make/commons/Modules.gmk defines the list of upgradeable modules, look 
for UPGRADEABLE_MODULES. A module is upgradeable can be 
overridden/upgraded by deploying it on the upgrade module path 
(`-upgrademodulepath` to javac or java). If you want to go into more 
details then we should probably move the discussion to jigsaw-dev.
