      Description

      See the comments on SI-7438 for motivation.

      Assigning to Phillip, as he is in touch with concurrency-interest about this. Setting the fix-version for 2.11, but we could still be persuaded to do this in 2.10.2.

          On the version that Doug recommends updating to:

          In general, always use the latest versions.
          Versions that introduce regressions or new problems
          don't last long before being updated.

          (See http://cs.oswego.edu/pipermail/concurrency-interest/2013-May/011273.html)
          Note that right now that's not true for the classes targeted for JDK8:

          This is not always the case for some ongoing JDK8
          j.u.c classes. Some are still dependent on other JDK8 features that
          haven't stabilized, so might not work for those not building
          openjdk from same sources and tracking bugfixes.
