    Description

      JDK-8299610 proposes to degrade Thread.stop so that it throws UOE unconditionally. To keep things manageable, it will initially leave JVM_StopThread in place. This issue tracks removing JVM_StopThread and related cleanup that can be done once Thread.stop has been degraded. In particular, it may be possible to remove Thread.stillborn as is should no longer be possible to send an async exception to an unstarted thread.
