Yes indeed it is essentially your patch. I actually went through each of
the x86 changes myself making corrections line by line and -- lo and
behold -- produced exactly the same result for jdkdev/jdk, jdk10 and
jdk9 (call me Pierre Menard, author of the Quixote). I admit I may
possibly have had your jdk8 patch beside me for reference :-)
