You might find it easier to add --patch-module to your JDK 8 build
instead. It's easy to translate a sequence of `--patch-module
<module>=<file>(<pathsep><file>)*` options to one
`-Xbootclasspath/p:<file>(<pathsep><file>)*`. Going the other way is not
easy, esp. if -Xbootclasspath/p is called with a directory or JAR file
containing classes or resources in "new" packages or where there are
classes that are no longer defined to the boot class loader.
