> Please review this PR which is fixing a long standing regression in javac. Basically javac is accepting code like:
> import java.util.function.*;
> class Test {
>     private String asString() {
>         return "bar";
>     }
>     static <T extends Test> Function<T, String> foo() {
>         return T::asString;
>     }
> }
> this code should be rejected on the grounds that ::asString is a private method in class Test and no subclass of it should have access to this method. This regression was introduced in JDK9 so it could be that there is code depending on this bug.
