> @tschatzl this pull request will not be integrated until the [CSR](https://wiki.openjdk.java.net/display/csr/Main) request [JDK-8277891](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8277891) for issue [JDK-8277854](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8277854) has been approved.

The CSR had been approved.
So integrate it.
