The classical workflow is to first fix jdk8 and then backport it,
so if you take a look to the backport section of JDK-8025128,
It was backported yesterday in 7u45 which is due to 2013-10-14
see https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8025474

people outside the ones listed in the census.
Mark (in CC), is it something fixable without involving lawyers ?
