    Description

      Switch Nashorn regular expression to a modified version of JRuby's Joni regexp engine.

      https://github.com/jruby/joni

      This improves performance in the Octane regexp benchmark by a factor of almost 2. It also gives us further potential for optimization such as compiling to Java bytecode which aren't available with java.util.regex.
