the subject should mention 8218628. (Not 8218626).
Sorry for this!

Subject: RFR (L, final): 8218626: Add detailed message to NullPointerException describing what is null.
this is the implementation of JEP 358: Helpful NullPointerExceptions.
The JEP is in status "Candidate". Coleen (many, many thanks!) ran
it through the Oracle-internal processes. Now I please need final reviews
for this change so that I can propose it to target jdk 14.
The change ran through a lot of testing, all jtreg and jck tests to name
only some. The webrev points to patch
that enables the change by default, which was useful for testing to
assure the code is used in the tests.
I just pushed the change to jdk/submit once more.
