I am a member of the Oracle Hotspot group and there is an initiative to 
clean up
things like uninitialized variables and unclosed file descriptors in 
JDK8. This is a
backport of fixes that have already been putback into JDK9. I have run 
UTE and
JPRT tests on Linux machines without problems. The below webrev show the 
fixes for
the Linux area.


This bug is not visible because it has been marked as Oracle confidential.

JDK-8033464 describes a JDK8 Linux specific code cleanup to address
possible uninitialized variables and unclosed file descriptors. These issues
were addressed in the fix.




Please review my changes and let me know if you have questions.
