      Description

      JDK-6330997 add support to javac to support N+1 class file versions of class file bytes.

      Supporting N+1 is extremely fragile given changes to the class file format can vary in scope, for example any addition to the constant pool will cause problems.

      This feature can be removed along with the corresponding test test/langtools/tools/javac/6330997/T6330997.java.
