Reviving an old thread...

Since CR 7110017 ( the VM part of this change ) has been in hsx for a 
few promoted builds now, I would like to proceed with the jdk part of 
these changes.

You guys already reviewed this, and the changes are the still the same. 
I just want to give you the heads up as I would like to push the changes 
to jdk8/awt/jdk soon. I just need to do fresh builds and testing.

FYI, latest webrev
