Hi Chris,

Please help to review the fix for 7081476 
test/java/net/InetSocketAddress/B6469803.java failing intermittently.

The test failed when it is running with 
java/net/DatagramPacket/ReuseBuf.java concurrently. As discussed, the 
root cause is:
1. The call InetAddress.getByName("LocalHost") in ReuseBuf.java 
generates the address entry which hostname is "LocalHost" and put it 
with lowercase key "localhost" into InetAddress cache.
2. if the test B6469803.java executes concurrently, the call new 
InetSocketAddress("localhost", 12345) lookups the InetAddress cache by 
using the key "localhost", it can find the result in cache which 
hostname is "LocalHost", so the test fails as the expected value is
