        Description

        To fix 4917309 (cl) Reduce internal usage of ClassNotFoundExceptions during class-loading, the VM needs to provide an entry point that will find a class from the bootstrap class loader and return null if not found (instead of throwing a ClassNotFoundException).

        JVM_FindClassFromBootLoader was added in JDK 7 for 6714758. We will modify that for this fix. This will simplify the synchronized pushes of the HotSpot fix and JDK fix.
