I wasn't aware of that bug until you mentioned it. I came up with the
same fix independently. I was looking at the 10 sources - where 8189761
was first applied - which still has XSTR(VENDOR) and I guess still has
this bug.

I've flagged it with jdk8u-fix-request and jdk8u-critical-request.


and will move it to a separate webrev.
