I was wondering that. It's fine to separate it from this bug.

classLoader.cpp - there are references to rt.jar that I think should be
321 // Check whether zip name ends in "rt.jar"
1322 // This will match other archives named rt.jar as well, but this is
1323 // only used for debugging.
1324 return string_ends_with(zip->name, "rt.jar");
1352 // We stop at rt.jar, unless it is the first bootstrap path entry
1353 if (e->is_jrt() && e != _first_entry) break;
Found rt.jar in comments - probably to take out those.
2601: // of safe & unsafe memory. Otherwise fails in a CTW of rt.jar
3125: // Happens in a CTW of rt.jar, 320-341, no extra flags
