      Description

      This bug is extracted from the JDK-8251123. Instead of specifying this old/unused class, I suggest to delete it.

      This is the comment added to this class in JDK 1.1.1:
      ==============================
      /*
       * In JDK 1.1.1, the pkg private class java.awt.PeerFixer was moved to
       * become an inner class of ScrollPane, which broke serialization
       * for ScrollPane objects using JDK 1.1.
       * Instead of moving it back out here, which would break all JDK 1.1.x
       * releases, we keep PeerFixer in both places. Because of the scoping rules,
       * the PeerFixer that is used in ScrollPane will be the one that is the
       * inner class. This pkg private PeerFixer class below will only be used
       * if the Java 2 platform is used to deserialize ScrollPane objects that were serialized
       * using JDK1.1
       */
