This is an umbrella CR to capture all the changes being incorporated into
the JDK as a result of work by JSR166 expert group alumni, especially Doug Lea,
and JDK engineers for the mustang (6) release.  

This effort proposes to fix a large number of extant
java.util and java.util.concurrent bugs and rfes.

Here's the list of the bugs being addressed:

           thread holds read lock
  6207984: (coll) PriorityQueue.remove(Object o) will remove an object
           with the same priority as o
  6233235: Add allowCoreThreadTimeOut to ThreadPoolExecutor to
           optionally allow core thread to use keep-alive
  6233236: Reduce need to replace interrupted worker threads in
           ThreadPoolExecutor for performance
  6236036: Timeouts can cause garbage retention in lock classes
  6245166: (coll spec) TreeMap class documentation should use SortedMap
           instead of Map
