There's a README in make/tools/sharing that outlines how the lists are 
created. It's basically a set of benchmarks that are run with 
-verbose:class and the list of classes is used to create the classlist.* 
files. At install time then -Xshare:dump loads this set of classes when 
creating the shared archive. I don't know how jre_reorder is used but I 
see Kelly has replied on that.
