Okay, good to know! Removed it from scheduled webrev.

Meh. The goal for my CI is to build (and find failures) in bleeding edge versions, so I shall
continue building and webreving the "lworld" head. Once it catches up with jdk/jdk, webrev would
start to make more sense.

Our Shenandoah experience forced us to do pulls and merges early and often, as gigantic merges with
jdk/jdk prove to be very exhausting and error-prone if we allow upstream changes to accumulate. For
webrevs, not pulling recent jdk/jdk to "default" in valhalla/valhalla would be nice. This would
probably throw "nestmates" branch under the bus though, hm.
