Hi folks,

Looking for a review of this webrev:


Basically the subjects credentials are not available to 
HttpURLConnection.getInputStream0 since it now runs in a doPrivileged 
block. Changing that to doPrivilegedWithCombiner allows getInputStream0 
access to the AccessControlContext's DomainCombiner and the subjects 
associated credentials.
