I would like to backport this patch to 11u for parity with Oracle 

The original bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8263558
The original patch: https://github.com/openjdk/jdk/commit/d2c137d4

The original patch does not apply cleanly. The conflict is due to 
JDK-8195100 [1], which changed Afree() method signature.
