Unfortunately, this change doesn't fix 8006593. We do have a fix planned for 8006593 in Java 8 but there's a difficulty in the current implementation that means we can't detect if the SecurityManager is initialized. The VM.isBooted() check is insufficient.

> The alternative hashing implementation introduced in 7u6 added an unfortunate bottleneck to the initialization of HashMap and Hashtable instances. This patch avoids the performance bottleneck of using a shared Random instance by using a ThreadLocalRandom instead.
> Along with this change are some additional performance improvements to further reduce the overhead of the alternative hashing feature and generally improve the performance of Hashtable or HashMap.
> Once review is completed here this patch will be proposed to JDK7u-dev for integration into the next 7u performance/feature release.
