For 8u, we should sync the JDK version with the Hotspot version in order to facilitate backports of patches such as the one for JDK-8216401<https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8216401> that assume the merged version.

This appears to just be the result of:

$ diff -u hotspot/test/testlibrary/ClassFileInstaller.java

I don't think a code dump with a unique bug ID is the correct way to fix

The actual changes come from two HotSpot changes:

changeset:   8710:4141ef4c8ba8
user:        vaibhav
date:        Thu Jul 26 06:16:09 2018 -0400
summary:     8189762: [TESTBUG] Create tests for JDK-8146115 container
awareness and resource configuration

changeset:   4665:43083e670adf
user:        coleenp
date:        Mon May 13 15:37:08 2013 -0400
summary:     8005056: NPG: Crash after redefining java.lang.Object

The appropriate course of action here is to apply the
test/testlibrary/ClassFileInstaller.java changes from these changesets
to the copy under test/lib/testlibrary/ClassFileInstaller.java under
their appropriate bug IDs, as should have been done to begin with and, I
presume, is intended for future changes to keep these in sync. This then
associates the changes with their original review and motivation.

I just tried this with 8189762 and it applies cleanly, leaving just the
changes in 8005056 as the diff.

I'd prefer they were separate changesets, but the current webrev could
be used with these two bug IDs rather than 8229501.
