I'm surprised no one has explained.
The jsr166 project is upstream of openjdk and is primarily maintained by
Doug Lea.
Essentially every file that can be found in Doug's CVS under src/main/util
is destined for inclusion in openjdk.
If modifications are made to openjdk directly, they are at risk of being
overwritten in the next sync.

I wish syncs from jsr166 => openjdk were more frequent.  Certainly right
now is a good time in the release process to do these kinds of syncs (and
in fact they are in progress in other changesets).
