Problem building WebView with latest 8u-dev and 9-dev

With the recently-integrated changes from 8u102, the WebKit build 
requires a new version of the webview-deps bundle. This new bundle has 
not yet been uploaded to maven central. Until we are able to do this, 
you will not be able to build WebKit without applying a workaround. I 
have filed a tracking bug in JBS for this:

The workaround is to locally revert the change to the version number of 
webview-deps in build.gradle.
