I guess. I didn't know about 8190690 until it came up as a diff between
the versions of the test in the backported patch and those in 8u. As
KdcPolicy.java was failing without it, it seemed logical to move it from
the files being removed to this new test so the replacement test was no
longer broken. But it does affect the clarity of the backport, you're right.

I've filed


for that issue and generated a new webrev for 8175120:
