JDK 17
Closing as won't fix for now.

I guess this will be similar to what was discussed for the 2.7.2 HarfBuzz update here: https://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/jdk-updates-dev/2021-January/004592.html Won't do unless specifically asked as it would require toolchain updates.

JDK-8266545, a follow-up fix, should get backported along with this.
