Description
I believe the fix for:

6622174: need to remove msvcr71.dll from the RemoveFile table

added many new unneeded entries to the RemoveFile table, which aren't actually part of the JRE that we're installing.  For instance:

attach.map, which is found in the jre/bin directory, is not a file that gets installed with the JRE...but it's in the RemoveFile table. 

Part of this investigation should determine if this impacts 6u10 performance, and if so, how much?

EVALUATION An easier fix is to grep -v out the map/pdb files when cat'ing the removefile > RemoveFile.idt

EVALUATION See also 6712407. These files should not be in the RemoveFile table either: INSTALLDIRDistributionREADME INSTALLDIRENTITLEMENT INSTALLDIRPerpetual_Entitlements

EVALUATION The cause was 6622174. The fix is to make sure we generate the RemoveFile table based on the core.zip that we're installing.
