RFR 8043406: Change default policy for JCE providers to run with as few privileges,as possible

   36         // Needed by Runtime.loadLibrary(String) call
   37         permission java.io.FilePermission "<<ALL FILES>>", "read";

It seems like this is due to a bug in Runtime.loadLibrary, since you 
have already granted the provider the permission to load the library. I 
think possibly the call to ClassLoader.loadLibrary should be inside a 
doPrivileged. The workaround is ok for now, but can you file a separate 
bug for this?
