I'm currently building an updated openjdk-8 with the attached changes
to see what the upgrade-desktop test cases would look like.

Note: I've chosen to remove the “Breaks: ${jrehl:Breaks}” line from
debian/control* so that I'm only touching these files, since d/rules
seems to only set it to tzdata-java anyway, depending on the target

I'll report the results afterwards, but as mentioned on IRC, even if
that looks good in the end, fewer than 2 days to become confident it
won't regress in other cases is really short. :(
