I think that there is one large item in that change that should not be included.
The requirement for using -Djdk.attach.allowAttachSelf=true is in Jake but not jdk9/dev.
I think that the Java community made it clear that this feature should not be included in JDK9, including going to the effort of writing a paper to that effect at
The revised proposal doesn't fix the problem that this JDK 9 command line property will be needed in many cases.
This "feature" takes away an API that was introduced publically in JDK 6 and obviously popular in usage.

We have again accumulated quite a few changes in the jake forest and I'd like to bring to jdk9/dev next week. It's all small changes this time,
JDK-8178380 [1] has the summary.
