Hello all,
1.7bb99 contains a patch for bug 6693236.

This change has a big impact for all projects that does bytecode 
because it requires to generate stackmap information for classfile 51.0.

During 1.6 time frame, the command line flag FailOverToOldVerifier was added
to ease the transition. (see https://jdk.dev.java.net/verifier.html  )
Later it was decided to enable that flag by default for 1.6.

The patch deactivates type inference for classfile 51.0,
I have no problem with that,
but it also deactivates FailOverToOldVerifier flag for classfile 51.0.

I want to know if there a reason to deactivate the command line flag
or if it's just a side-effect of the fix.
