The 8u patch looks good to me, as in, inspection says it does the same thing in 8u as in 11u.

             8: MISSING
    8u fix does not apply cleanly, because Bitmap is cleaned up a bit in subsequent releases. There is
    also no support for gtest, which means we cannot backport the relevant regression test. Instead, we
    have to rely on assert to fire if code is broken. 8u webrev:
    Testing: Linux x86_64 build and all jtreg tests (with some unrelated failures)
