      Description

      The description of the "Xverify:remote" option is incorrect. It needs to be fixed in JDK8 and also for future releases.

      === wrong text
      remote

      Verify only those classes that are loaded remotely over the network. This is the default behavior if you do not specify the -Xverify option.

      === suggested new text
      remote

      Verify those classes that are not loaded by the bootstrap class loader. This is the default behavior if you do not specify the -Xverify option.

      These were the only instances of the incorrect text I could find, but there may be other documents that require fixing.
