backport JDK-8130506 to 8 ?

There's maybe 3 parts to this:

1. Is it conceptually reasonable to backport the fix
2. Is it a relatively easy backport (i.e. does the fix for 9 apply reasonably easily, or do we need a different fix, specific to 8)
3. Making it happen

If folk can weigh in on 1 and 2, and the answer to both questions is "yes", we can make 3 happen easily enough.
