Hi Sergey, That's pretty much the case.  I just went through the code
and found these differences:
- merged in JDK-8055173 (merge jawt.dll into javaaccessbridge.dll) which
was recently pushed.
- removed some dead code
- cleaned up up comments/documentation
- cleaned up some code indentation issues
- in package-private EventQueueMonitor.addTopLevelWindow the return
value was not used so I changed the return from boolean to void

If anyone knows if that last one is a compatibility issue I will change
it back.
