Hi Eric,

Alan Bateman asked me to help you out with this since he's going to be 
unavailable for a couple weeks.

I didn't see you on the OpenJDK census [1] so you might not have an Author role 
and thus the ability to post webrevs. If indeed you don't, I can post a webrev 
for you. I can also post a webrev for your other review (7123972) if it's still 

Finally, I can push the fixes for you when the reviews are complete.
