FYI, the javac Xlint option for building the jdk repo in JDK 9 has been 
changed to "-Xlint:all" and then explicitly opting-out of lint 
categories which are not met:

Therefore, to avoid breaking the jdk build whenever a new lint category 
is added to javac, care will need to be taken that the JDK is either 
clear of such warnings or that the jdk makefile is updated to exclude 
the new option until its checks are met.
