RFR: 8042088: Sjavac spawns external processes in a unnecessarily complex and platform dependent way

Hi compiler-dev,

Please review this small fix for JDK-8042088 which changes how sjavac spawns background processes.

Sjavac starts a background server through a shell (cmd on windows, and /bin/sh on other systems). This patch changes this so that the background service is launched directly instead.
