I skimmed through the changes to src/java.base and they look okay except for the changes to 3rd party code that I think should be dropped from this patch.

src/java.base/share/native/libzip/zlib/inftrees.h line 65:

This is 3rd party code so should be dropped from the patch as we want as few changes to this code has possible.

src/java.base/windows/native/libnio/ch/wepoll.c line 894:

This is also 3rd party code so should be dropped from this patch.
