Unused imports

The imports are largely historical dating from before we had IDEs to  
help fix these issues, and it's not been a high priority for us to fix  
them.  Currently, the policy is to fix them when a source file is  
being edited anyway.

If you wish to contribute a suitable patch, that would be great, but  
please note that anyone contributing to OpenJDK must first sign the  
Sun Contributor Agreement form.  You can find details at http://sca.dev.java.net 

If you made the contribution, it would help to know how you determined  
which imports to remove. This will help review the patch -- meaning  
that it is simpler to review a patch knowing that the changes were  
determined by a tool, than determined manually.
