I am with Severin here. The lack of acceptance test profile in 8u is severely impeding 8u
backporting work. I personally keep Severin's patches applied at all times in my local patch queue,
because that is the only way I can have 8u coverage more or less similar to what I do for 11u backports.

Langtools build changes do not look bad, and they are pretty isolated from the rest of build system,
which means we are not risking regressing important stuff.
