We have a number of bugs reported against dark mode on macOS, which cannot be fixed in the OpenJDK but requires a fix in the JavaRuntimeSupport framework (JRS) supported by macOS.

FB6798883: The JavaRuntimeSupport.framework does not work properly in the dark mode 
was reported to Apple on Aug 6 2019

See JDK-8231386 and JDK-8228555 for examples of bugs caused by the macOS bug.

Until these bugs are fixed dark mode should be considered as unsupported.

Fix request (13u) Requesting backport to 13u for parity with 11u, applies cleanly.

jdk11 backport request I would like to have the patch in open jdk11 as well, to have parity to Oracle JDK 11.0.8. The patch applies cleanly as long as the test from https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8211301 is downported.
