The file java.util.ArrayPrefixHelpers seems to be part of the 166-alpha
set of files in the JDK.
There are a number of package-private static final and serializable
classes in this file which neither define serialVersionUIDs nor have a
@SuppressWarnings("serial") annotation. So, this file adds a number of
serial warnings to the JDK and efforts are underway to clear the jdk
repo of serial warnings, which are mostly in the client area:
JDK-8032976: Fix serial lint warnings in client libraries
Can the maintainers of ArrayPrefixHelpers "do the right thing" with
respect to the serial warnings in this file? From a quick look at the
file, it wasn't clear to me if SUIDs should be added or warnings suppressed.
