Today, I tried google-searching for "LinkedList se 9" which sent me to
which gives me 404.  That's an improvement on the stale +104 docs, and
should prod Google's engine into learning about better docs, but it
may still take a while.  Redirection could be improved.
I tried "binging" "LinkedList se 9" and it gave me the same result.

Like I always say, populate the final jdk 9 docs directory from the
very first EA build!
