I believe Chris had possible concerns with Services.initializeJVMCI() (at http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~dnsimon/8177845/hotspot/src/jdk.internal.vm.ci/share/classes/jdk.vm.ci.services/src/jdk/vm/ci/services/Services.java.udiff.html). As previously stated, I can't see any security issues with this method which is why it doesn't check JVMCIPermission.
