Building OpenJDK-10 or OpenJDK-11 requires OpenJDK-9, so you won't be able
to build them in a fresh SLE-12:SP3 installation anyway.

SLE-11:* doesn't even have OpenJDK-8 and is also going to be out of support
next year anyway.

I don't necessarily disagree bringing your changes into JDK-8 or JDK-9,
but I don't think they make sense to introduce them to JDK-10 and JDK-11.
