Hi all,
Please review the fix for bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8144988
Webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~rpatil/8141243/webrev.00
This is basically a backport of JDK9 bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8141243
JDK9 changeset(for reference): http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk9/dev/jdk/rev/a1aa2671f281
Reason for the review request is because of: 
i)     Changes present in ResourceBundleGenerator.java file.
ii)   The patch from JDK9 does not automatically apply as is after using unshuffle_patch script. Few paths are adjusted as per the jdk8.
Since CLDR became the default locale data in JDK9 leading incompatible behavior with prior releases, the relevant code in ResourceBundleGenerator is also backported in this patch.
Even though JDK8 has CLDR locale provider disabled by default, the code change is done to be on safer side for cases where CLDR may be supporting "UTC" ID in the future.
