    Description

      Introduced in 9-b163 as part of:
      JDK-8174823 Module system implementation refresh (3/2017)

      Usage of the new option ( --permit-illegal-access ) prints a warning to stderr. While this is intentional behavior, the warning should respect the -XX:-PrintWarnings option as do other warning messages (like the new CMS deprecation warning in 9).

      I understand the desire to make user's aware, but if they go to lengths to intentionally use -XX:-PrintWarnings, then it's "buyer beware" and we should respect that.
