Going on this & the similar Amazon fix, I'd say we should backport
JDK-8193255 & JDK-8225392 first. The previous updates which alter a
binary file have been pretty much unreviewable and, if there's a better
solution to that, I'd rather we had it sooner rather than later.

Likewise, judging by the comment on JDK-8234245, I'd say that needs to
be applied between the LuxTrust & Amazon ones:

"This fixes an issue after JDK-8232019, so it needs to be included.
Patch applies cleanly."
