      Description

      The jsr166 project likes to build for target 9 while using --patch-module to modify some system classes. This works well for javac9, but for javac10 we get:
      (JSR166_JAR="$HOME/jsr166/pristine/build/jsr166.jar" JDK10="$HOME/jdk/jdk10"; $JDK10/bin/javac --patch-module java.base="$JSR166_JAR" -source 9 -target 9 Main.java)
      warning: [options] bootstrap class path not set in conjunction with -source 1.9
      1 warning

      Is it even possible to set a bootstrap class path with -source 9? There are no bootstrap jars any more.

      We can suppress the warning with -Xlint all:-options, but would prefer not to.

      If we try to switch to using --release, we get:

       $ (JSR166_JAR="$HOME/jsr166/pristine/build/jsr166.jar" JDK10="$HOME/jdk/jdk10"; $JDK10/bin/javac --patch-module java.base="$JSR166_JAR" --release 9 Main.java)
      error: patching system module java.base is not allowed in combination with --release

      We can use javac9 to build the jsr166 jar, but javac10 is supposed to be a "better javac9"
