Class.getSimpleName() was changed to use the name recorded in the InnerClasses
attribute of the class file. This change may affect applications which generate custom
bytecode with incomplete or incorrect information recorded in the InnerClasses attribute.
Changed the subcomponent to java.lang so the release note is grouped with other core-libs/java.lang changes.
