This is a request for review of this bug:

The method DateTimeFormatter withResolverFields() is supposed to
accept null. This is to allow a coy of the formatter to be returned
reset to the original state of having no resolver fields. The docs
"@param resolverFields the new set of resolver fields, null if no fields"
which was written to indicate that resetting to null is permitted.

The fix is to check for null and return a copy of the formatter. Note
that there are two variations of the method which need fixing.

Proposed patch:
The patch includes no spec changes.
The patch fixes the broken TCK tests.

I need a reviewer and a committer please.
