Could you review the updated fix:

   - The test/com/sun/jdi/ReferrersTest.java test is updated to use 
   - The sun.misc.GThreadHelper class is moved to the sun.awt package in 
the java.desktop module

   The jdk.unsupported dependency was removed from the 
src/java.desktop/share/classes/module-info.java file.
   The sun.misc.GThreadHelper class is called by JNI and may be it does 
not require the declared dependency to the jdk.unsupported module. In 
any case it seems better to move the  GThreadHelper class to the 
java.desktop module.

> test/com/sun/jdi/ReferrersTest.java references sun.misc.SoftCache.  I don’t know whether this test finds sun.misc.SoftCache in the reference graph at all.  I suggest to update the test to check “sun.awt.SoftCache” instead and file a bug to the serviceability to follow up if that check is needed or not.
