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.

Right this is all temporary.  One benefit of having the concatenation done by image builder will get the makefile cleaned up and get ready for the resources keyed for a module as long as the work required is small.

Good point about image refresh and any image builder change should come after jimage refresh to avoid causing any merge conflict.   

Depending on when the image refresh and this security provider change are ready to push to jdk9/dev, I can work with Valerie to determine whether to wait or phase it.
