Hi Remi
I agree on your comments; however note that the aim of the XlintWarn 
test is to check that the compiler issues warnings in relation to 
old-style usage of 292 target typing - since the old syntax is going 
away (see related cleanup CR: 6992698). In other words, the aim of this 
changeset is to make tests pass again (with b123) awaiting for a more 
precise cleanup (which is needed since InvokeDynamic and other 292 
features should be removed from the JDK 7 repo).
