I just realized I didn't cc compiler-dev on this update.

Would it be possible to get a reviewer for the langtools changes in this 
update? The update webrevs (against jdk-9+164) is here:


The only two non-mechnical changes to the src tree in this update are 
Jan's update to com/sun/tools/javac/comp/Modules.java to align the 
handling of automatic modules with run-time. We also had to update 
com/sun/tools/javac/file/Locations.java to not drop trailing digits and 
so align the derivation of automatic module names with the latest 
proposal in JSR 376.

As I mentioned on jigsaw-dev yesterday, we have accumulated a number of
changes in the jake forest and would like to bring the changes into
jdk9/dev for jdk-9+165.

Most of the changes in this update are the move of Module and friends
from java.lang.reflect to java.lang. This is mostly a mechanical update.

We also have the update to the derivation of automatic modules to no
longer ignore trailing digits in modules names, this is to align JDK 9
with the updated proposal for issue #VersionsInModuleNames [1].

There are a number of smaller changes, summarized in JDK-8177530 [2].

The webrev with the changes is here:

The changes are currently based on jdk-9+163 and will be rebased before
pushing to jdk9/dev.

The corresponding update to jtreg is already in the code-tools/jtreg
repo and will be tagged (I assume as jtreg4.2-b07) before this
integration. Once it is tagged then we'll rev'ing the requiredVersion in
