awt-dev is not all. This patch touches 2D and Swing code also.
so awt-dev, 2d-dev & swing-dev.
Those need to be pushed to 9/client and reviewed there.
I wonder if @since on the implementation classes is even worth it or
whether there is a policy there. No one should be reading that part
of the doc. Did you just blindly change everything or did you consider
what is really API ? Its probably inconsistently applied too.
Maybe they should be @Override instead 0- where applicable - else removed.

That is a high order bit.

If anything is to be touched, the result had better be what is wanted 
long term.
