The changes look fine to me.

David - I'm sure that Windows 8 will bring surprises but so far the only 
one that we know of for the "core" area is:

7096436: (sc) SocketChannel.connect fails on Windows 8 when channel 
configured non-blocking

Kurchi pushed a fix for that a few weeks ago. I'm sure other issues 
(client area in particular) will be found once folks start to run tests 
and use Windows 8 in anger.
