This is a compiler upgrade on Linux from the current gcc 8.3 compiler to gcc 9.2. This will match a recent upgrade done
for JDK 15 -- see [JDK-8241721](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8241721).

On a related note, using the gcc 9 compiler produces many (harmless) warnings that will be addressed by
[JDK-8241476](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8241476) -- see PR #150.

I have run a full build and test using this new compiler.
