Thanks.  While you're at it, could you please rename the annotation to
@IntrinsicCandidate?  There's no need for the "HotSpot" prefix any more
since this annotation will now be in a package that is reserved for
VM-specific annotations.

(Sorry for this late suggestion; this just came up in a discussion of
 the @ReservedStackAccess annotation for JEP 270, which is also destined
 for the jdk.internal.vm.annotation package.)

(I've pasted this addendum into JDK-8138732.)
