Both issues are of course being backported, so there is a changeset for 
each. The 8147910 backport applied cleanly and does not need a 
re-review. But I kept it in the webrev, as I said, so that you could 
refer to it for the API update.

I just need a statement that this is an accurate backport of 8161993.
