Please review the fix for JDK-8193444

Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8193444
Webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~nishjain/8193444/webrev.02/

Cause: If a format pattern contains a sequence of over 256 non-ASCII 
unicode characters, the length field overflows as it is stored as 8-bit.
Fix: The handling of long_length (> 254) for non-ASCII unicode 
characters is missing in the compilation phase of the format pattern, 
added that in the fix.
