Could you review the fix:
This is the regression from the fix JDK-8076545 in the JDK 8u.
There was a request JDK-8152980 to backport the fix to JDK 8u because
a text size is very big on Windows 10 with UI scaling set to 300% when
the Windows L&F is used.
However, this leads to another issue that a personalized Windows font
size is not taken into account in Swing app with Windows L&F on JDK 8u.
JDK 9 does not run into this issue because it contains support for
HiDPI displays which reads the system DPI and scales a whole application
with fonts according to system UI scale.
The proposed solution is just to revert back the initial JDK-8076545
fix for JDK 8u only.
