Please review the webrev for
https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8051626

http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~ptbrunet/JDK-8051626/webrev.00/

This is so the the Java Accessibility Utilities package,
com.sun.java.accessibility.util, can be run with the security manager
active but the non-public accessibility packages won't, i.e.
com.sun.java.accessibility.internal and
com.sun.java.accessibility.util.internal.

Running the regression test proves that there will be a security
exception when using a method of com.sun.java.accessibility.util before
the fix but not after.
