With the new devkits I deployed recently (Oracle internal), the file
layout changed as a top level directory inside the tar archive was
introduced. This works in most cases, but there are certain situations
where jib does not handle this well. This causes AOT testing on Linux to
stop working with the run-test-prebuilt make target.
This issue is being fixed in Jib, but to activate the fix a bump in the
format_version is required. This patch does that, as well as adjusting
to conform to the new behavior.
(note that the Jib fix is not yet live in production)
