RFR: JDK-8228460: bootstrap class path not set in conjunction with -source 11

When running with --source which is less than the current default source 
and -bootclasspath is not specified, a warning about not specified 
-bootclasspath is printed. But that is not really appropriate for 
-source 9+, because it should a) mention system module path, rather than 
-bootclasspath; b) the option to check should be --system, not 
-bootclasspath. The proposed patch is trying to fix that.

How does this look?
