the canonicalize() method is never used by java.io or any Java code. Currently it is used by the hotspot in classloader.cpp (which I use in the test) and in libinstrument in InvocationAdapter.c. There is no way to test it in core-libs. One can argue if the canonicalize method is in the right file, but that should be a separate discussion.

This isn't a hotspot issue but a core-libs one.
The use of a hotspot-runtime test seems more opportunistic than anything
else - is it just for code coverage? I would expect to find a more
appropriate test somewhere in core-libs.
