    thanks for your review.

    It doesn't. IllegalArgumentException is a RuntimeException and as such doesn't need a throws declaration. And InvalidKeyException is obviously not needed and was removed in the original changeset as well.

    Thanks. I also asked Max Wang to have a look off list and he seems to agree as well.

    Yes, a CSR is not necessarily a showstopper for a backport. But as it is not my area of expertise and there's no other reason that makes backports of these bugs important to me, I don't want to take the additional work and responsibility for these backports. But feel free to do this ��
    So, I guess I'm good to push this, once approved.
