It all looks fine to me too. Once this first phase gets to jdk9/dev then 
the rest of the library code using sun.misc.Unsafe can be switched to 
the jdk.internal version. They could move in the first phase too but 
that makes it a bigger patch so I think Chris has wisely limited the 
library changes to just those that are using methods that are new in 9.
