With the proposed change we don't see regressions in the nightly tests on all platforms.
2.3.0 does not build on Solaris, probably due to this commit :
2.1.3 turned out to have critical errors affecting Solaris which have now been fixed in 2.3.0
The work will now target 2.3.0, which was released 12/21/18 and is still current on 1/29/19,
unless it turns out to have problems as well, or it is superseded in the next few days ..
As JDK-8214123 has been closed as duplicate of this one, can we expect that after import build will work fine with GCC 8?
