For some time Karl has been using OpenJDK 6 as the upstream master for 
Gervill.  If there are additional fixes in the Gervill overlays in 
IcedTea 6/7, they should be applied to OpenJDK 6/7.  In other words, I 
recommend that the IcedTea Gervill overlays go away since they shouldn't 
be necessary at this point.
