Hi Matthias,

first of all: The change looks good to me, +1.
I assume you have run it through our build/test infrastructure and see no regressions...

As for the process:
In your case, you want to backport a change and the original patch does not apply cleanly. For that scenario, you don't have to create a new bug (as JDK-8221318 in your case). You should just ask for review under the original bug id (JDK-8215710). When you have reviews and push approval, you need to push the change with the original patch message, referencing the original bug (JDK-8215710). The hgupdater daemon will then create a new backport bug and creates the according links.

For your case, I've set fix version of JDK-8221318 to 11-pool. Then hgupdater will pick it up and resolve it for the right release. Maybe you ping me, when you're going to push, then we can check things together ��

Best regards

> Hello, please review this change.
> It is a downport of   jdk13 change
> https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8215710     to  11u .
> JDK-8215710  removed the disabling of C99 on Solaris in jdk13.
> Reason was :
> "Currently we disable C99 in the Solaris build by setting -xc99=%none%.
> This differs from a lot of other build environments like gcc/Linux or
> VS2013/2017 on Windows where C99 features work.
> We should remove this difference on Solaris and remove or replace the
> setting. "
> It would be helpful to have this downported to jdk11, because it would make
> downporting changes easier (brings build settings of the releases closer
> together) .
> (I was already  running  into   one issue   because  of the  different build
> settings )
