> PR#8599 8244681: proposes to add compiler warnings for possible lossy 
> conversions
> From the CSR:
> "If the type of the right-hand operand of a compound assignment is not 
> assignment compatible with the type of the variable, a cast is implied and 
> possible lossy conversion may silently occur. While similar situations are 
> resolved as compilation errors for primitive assignments, there are no 
> similar rules defined for compound assignments."
> This PR anticipates the warnings and adds explicit casts to replace the 
> implicit casts.
> In most cases, the cast matches the type of the right-hand side to type of 
> the compound assignment.
> Since these casts are truncating the value, there might be a different 
> refactoring that avoids the cast
> but a direct replacement was chosen here.
> (Advise and suggestions will inform similar updates to other OpenJDK modules).
