Right. That doesn't answer the question as to the origin of the changes.
If I look at the langtools Makefile in OpenJDK 11, it doesn't have these
changes. Should they not go there first if they are needed?

Update releases are primarily for backports, so I'm dubious of anything
that brings in a bunch of apparently new changes without making it clear
why there are needed and why a backport is not appropriate.
