If you do decide to split this then it will require creating a second 
issue JIRA to avoid running foul of jcheck when jdk/client eventually 
pushes to jdk/dev. I don't know how often jdk9/client integrates into 
jdk9/dev but it doesn't seem to be very frequent (hg incoming suggests 
there is currently about a month of changes backed up in jdk9/client but 
there may be issues to explain this).

For this specific case then it doesn't seem worth it, it would be much 
less effort to just push the lot to jdk9/dev. Clearly if there were 
substantive changes then it would be important to push the changes to 
the forest where they are most likely to get tested but it hardly seems 
worth it here. From what I can tell then Phil or others sync up 
jdk9/client regularly and that might be the most efficient way to get 
these changes into jdk9/client.
