Description
One of the failing tier1 tests in OpenJDK 8u is:
test/java/util/Calendar/JapanEraNameCompatTest.java

It fails with:
java.lang.AssertionError: expected [Reiva] but found [\u0420\u0435\u0438\u0432\u0430]
        at org.testng.Assert.fail(Assert.java:94)
test JapanEraNameCompatTest.testChronoJapanEraDisplayName(no, "Reiwa", "R"): failure
java.lang.AssertionError: expected [R] but found [Reiwa]

This issue got introduced with the backport of JDK-8218781. Locale data isn't up-to-date enough. Hence the test fails. The proposal is to include parts of JDK-8008577 and JDK-8145136 which is how this is being fixed in later JDKs.

Fix Request (OpenJDK 8u): Please approve for OpenJDK 8u as this fixes a long-standing test failure part of tier1. Risk should be low as it only adds additional i18n files which where not present before. Testing: tier1 now one less failure for the jdk suite.
