JDK-8242068 introduced a directsign property and option that can control whether to use signedAttrs when generating a PKCS #7 block. The option is not necessary because RFC 8933 recommends the signedAttrs should always be generated for security reasons.
The release note at https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8255132 is also modified to remove the property/option.
