RFR: 8309136: [JVMCI] add -XX:+UseGraalJIT flag [v3]

> Use of the Graal-based JIT in OpenJDK currently requires the following flag: `-XX:+EnableJVMCIProduct`
> This has no direct association with Graal. If the JDK image happens to include a non-Graal JVMCI implementation, it will be automatically selected. This would come as a surprise to users who equate JVMCI with Graal.
> This PR introduces a new flag, `-XX:+UseGraalJIT` to address these shortcomings. It is an alias for `-XX:+EnableJVMCIProduct -Djvmci.Compiler=graal`. 
> When `-XX:+UseGraalJIT` is specified, the VM fails fast at startup if there is a non-Graal JVMCI implementation or no JVMCI implementation in the JDK image.

Doug Simon has updated the pull request incrementally with five additional commits since the last revision:

 - improve error message when UseGraalJIT is used without -XX:+UnlockExperimentalVMOptions
 - use strncmp instead of strcmp
 - fix date in copyright header
 - set UseGraalJIT value in enable_jvmci_product_mode
 - added missing test of UseJVMCICompiler when adjusting JVMCI flags under -Xint
