I agree with Mandy's point that java.security should be change to list 
the provider name rather than the class name. If that happens then it 
means that the service configuration files will be required.

I don't have a strong view on whether the concatenation is done via make 
files or the image builder as it's all just temporary and will go away 
once resources are keyed by a module. One thing about rev'ing the image 
builder is that we should probably let the jimage refresh get into 
jdk9/dev first. I don't think we want to delay that due to merge conflicts.
