Hello Sergey and Alexander,

Could you please review the following back port of the fix, which you 
already reviewed for JDK 10, from JDK 10 to JDK 8.

Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8166772
JDK 8 webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~alitvinov/8166772/jdk8/webrev.00
JDK 10 changeset: http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk10/client/rev/3b244a98d5ab
JDK 10 webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~alitvinov/8166772/jdk10/webrev.01

The back port fix is identical to the original fix for JDK 10, except 
for the next micro changes:

1.  "SunToolkit.java" file - In JDK 8 version of the fix 
"AccessController.doPrivileged(new GetPropertyAction(" is used instead 
of "GetPropertyAction.privilegedGetProperty(", since 
"GetPropertyAction.privilegedGetProperty" does not exist in JDK 8.

2.  "WToolkit.java" file - In JDK 8 version of the fix the import 
statement "import sun.awt.AWTAccessor;" was added.

Thank you,
