  Wrong version set in latest openjdk-8 builds

Status in openjdk-8 package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  The current openjdk-8 build has a wrong version number set. `java
  -version`, `javac -version` etc. report the version string of this
  OpenJDK build as "java 1.8.0_01-internal", which is clearly wrong.
  This also triggers warnings about unsupported version in third party

  Please update the build process, so that the reported version of
  openjdk-8 matches the actual version, like "1.8.0_72" or similar.
