I'm okay with this plan and if you re-generate the webrev without the 
async close changes then I can look at it quickly so that you can get it 
into the stage-9 forest.

On 7133499 then it would be a good candidate for 8u-dev too, I don't 
expect any problems but we will need to get it approved on the jdk8u-dev
