      Description

      Bug 6459421 revealed a potential for bugs in the javac parser caused by the slight change in semantics of reportSyntaxError (a call of skip() was removed).

      We should audit the parser to make sure no other latent bugs remain.

      Any such bugs could cause javac to hang, as did 6459421.
