Brian - thanks for getting this fixed.  Looks good to me.

I reviewed the fix for JDK-8036848 and missed the subtle compatibility 
issue (thanks to Sherman for catching it).  I think it's good to adjust 
this fix as it was intended to fix the deprecation warning that should 
not cause any behavioral change, as Sherman explains.
