Reported by Andrew on the OpenJDK 7u-dev mailing list : 


Webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~andrew/7u/webrev/

There's an ambiguity that applies when building OpenJDK 7 with OpenJDK 6
(and hence I haven't posted this for 8 as it can't be built with 6).

OpenJDK 6 has a class sun.security.provider.certpath.CertificateRevokedException.
OpenJDK 7 has a class java.security.cert.CertificateRevokedException.

Two classes in sun.security.provider.certpath in OpenJDK 7 import
java.security.cert.CertificateRevokedException indirectly via
java.security.cert.*.  This appears to cause a compilation failure
in some cases if the ambiguity is resolved to the CertificateRevokedException
in the bootstrap JDK instead of the new one in java.security.cert.

This is easily fixed by explicitly importing the classes required as in the
above webrev.

Is this ok for 7u?  If so, can I have a bug ID for it?
