these are still hard links.

No it's specifically only applied to -ecj patches.

Wrong. The patch is applied in the openjdk-ecj directory, but because all files are hard links, it's applied in the openjdk directory as well. I don't see a way to have patch break the hard links while patching.

You should only
ever ship a build created from the openjdk tree and not
openjdk-ecj/boot (i.e. the second stage of a full build or the result
of a --with-openjdk/--disable-bootstrap build), which has a number of
features turned off (including Nimbus).

sure, this is always done in the Debian/Ubuntu builds. I didn't check this for other distributions.
