Alan suggested in the bug report for the broken link from the jdwp-protocol
spec to the java/lang/ThreadGroup documentation to simply remove the
href link. Another possibility is to simply update the link to include 
the java.base

I don't think the doc structure changes very often so either solution
seems fine to me.
