I'm heading away on vacation now and only quickly scanned the updated 
webrev. All looks okay to me. On the calls to the CF functions then one 
thing is that if they fail (and this is unlikely I know) then you won't 
have an exception pending so may need to add code to call one of the 
JNU* functions to throw OOME, otherwise it might cause a NPE in the 
caller rather than throwing an exception as you would expect.
