      Some non-excessive GC tuning to allow for the size needed to operate on a full image improves total runtime substantially:

      time bin/jlink -J-Xlog:gc -J-Xms400m -J-Xmn300m --module-path=jmods --add-modules java.se --output 9link2
      [0.026s][info][gc] Using G1
      [1,566s][info][gc] GC(0) Pause Young (G1 Evacuation Pause) 300M->58M(400M) (1,508s, 1,566s) 57,175ms

      real 0m2.291s
      user 0m14.856s
      sys 0m0.836s

      Additionally, since jlink is typically a short-running program, limiting the number of compiler threads can have a positive effect on total runtime and reducing CPU saturation:

      $ time bin/jlink -J-Xlog:gc -J-Xms400m -J-Xmn300m -J-XX:CICompilerCount=2 --module-path=jmods --add-modules java.se --output ~/jdks/9link13
