-----------------------------------------------------------------

A number of "internal" {{com.sun}} classes will be removed, including Unsafe. These removals
need to be handled or HBase will not be able to run on a Java 9 runtime. Doing this in a backwards
compatible way may be tricky. I'm not sure how the Java platform community will navigate to
where they want to go while dealing with unfixable user code breakage and I hope we have an
opportunity to provide pushback on changes if required. 

I don't think we need to do anything today beyond track what others in the ecosystem are doing,
for example HADOOP-11123

> Java 9 will ship in 2016. This will be the first Java release that makes a significant
compatibility departure from earlier runtimes.
