    Description

      Util.toBinaryName is only used to obtain a name for Class.forName, but it tries to accommodate a wider range of input, which complicated its implementation and led to incorrect javadoc specification, found by ExE-Boss in post-integration review of JDK-8304425. In addition, a few other methods are made obsolete by the symbol migration in Classfile API performance improvement and can be safely removed from Util.
