I'm including core-libs-dev so that they know this fix is coming.
The jdk change looks okay to me. Minor nit: L1250-1251: some
identation will help. You can follow the original formatting - breaking
'?' and ':" in the newlines.
Can you include the new regression test in the jdk repo as well
(test/vm/verifier directory)? That'll make sure this test is run by
core-libs and JPRT job (it's part of the default testset).
