Thanks for the tip. I tried this and it didn't quite work (n.b. I passed
options -r hotspot and -to9).

All the paths in the patch still contained src/hotspot/... where it
should just have been src/...

Also, the script did not interpose the necessary vm subdir (as in
src/cpu/aarch64/vm/... or src/share/vm/interpreter/...)

I'm not sure if your success was because you backported e.g. jdk changes
rather than hotspot changes or if I passed the wrong arguments.

Anyway, a quick emacs session sorted things out :-)
