This is ridiculously hostile behaviour: to break a bunch of things
in OpenJDK, do a release, and then immediately drop the project
on the floor before giving anyone a chance to fix what is broken.
Really, I would have expected better than this.

I guess I'll have to be the project maintainer for long enough to
commit the necessary fixes so that jdk9u works for all ports, not
just the ones that Oracle ships.
