suncompat provides some Sun internal classes that are widely used by 
applications. I guess these classes just delegate functions to Harmony classes 
which has equivalent functions. luni-kernel-stubs.jar is just stub classes to 
make compiler happy, the "real" classes are provided by vm.

As I know, yoko is rmi provider, asm is used by pack200 module.
