One suggestion is reduce this down to one method that returns a stream 
rather than a collection. It could work lazily if you want. Something like:

   Stream<String> splitSearchPath(String input)

is a lot more flexible (in my view) and the places where we use Path 
objects can use .map(Path::of).

In passing, I see the current patch changes the UCP constructor that is 
used for supporting -Xbootclasspath/a. That that will to be checked to 
see if it has any impact on startup.
