<i18n dev> RFR: 8253497: Core Libs Terminology Refresh

This is part of an effort in the JDK to replace archaic/non-inclusive words with more neutral terms (see JDK-8253315 for details).

Here are the changes covering core libraries code and tests.  Terms were changed as follows:
1. grandfathered -> legacy
2. blacklist -> filter or reject
3. whitelist -> allow or accept
4. master -> coordinator
5. slave -> worker

Addressing similar issues in upstream 3rd party code is out of scope of this PR.  Such changes will be picked up from their upstream sources.
