PS This change is part of preparatory work to allow stricter checking of 
serial-related properties by the javac -Xlint:serial checks.  So in the 
fullness of time, the work intended to be done under JDK-8202056: 
"Expand serial warning to check for bad overloads of serial-related 
methods" will check for these kinds of properties as part of the build.
