webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~ccheung/jdk16/8243586/webrev.00/

The proposed change is to reduce the calls to 
SystemDictionaryShared::define_shared_package which does a java call to 
AppClassLoader.defineOrCheckPackage. Currently, define_shared_package is 
called for every shared class but it is needed only for each package in 
each jar specified in the classpath.
