Thanks, that would be great.

I agree, but as I wrote, this change is intended to finally go into both
jdk9 and jkd8u and I didn't wanted to do to much refactoring for jdk8u.
Once its in and we have a working port I'd be happy to work on refactoring
the code but I think this should be done in jdk9 where we have more time
and less risks of changing the behaviour on the existing platforms.

This is the last "bulk change" which address issues in several different
areas of the class library. Follow up changes will be more specific with
better bug synopsis (I promise :).
