>> Please review this fix for JDK-8256867. This change no longer throws a ClassFormatError exception when loading a class whose PermittedSubclasses attribute is empty (contains no classes). Instead, the class is treated as a sealed class which cannot be extended nor implemented. This new behavior conforms to the JVM Spec.
>> This change required changing Class.permittedSubclasses() to return an empty array for classes with empty PermittedSubclasses attributes, and to return null for non-sealed classes.
>> This fix was tested with Mach5 tiers 1-2 on Linux, MacOS, and Windows, and tiers 3-5 on Linux x64.
>> Thanks, Harold
