Vladimir kindly responded to this with an approval on the JIRA. I am
still not sure where to go from here though:

  Can I/do I need to push the patch to the dev tree or the jdk10 tree?

  What do I need to do to get the patch into the jdk-updates jdk9u tree?

I'm rather confused as regards jdk9u as there is no jdk9u-dev list to
post to in order to request a backport. Red Hat wants to patch its
downstream jdk9 repos but ideally this ought to go in upstream first.
Also, the 9.0.4 Oracle release (built by AdoptOpenJDK?) is broken on
AArhc64 so it really needs a respin after this patch has been included.

Thanks in advance for any help or advice that can be offered.
