>> As the name suggests, `COMPAT` locale provider keeps compatibility with JDK8's locale data (before CLDR).  This is useful for legacy applications, but some of its data got obsolete for later locale data updates, such as the country name change for `Eswatini` (formerly known as `Swaziland`). This PR is to fix those names up-to-date from CLDR. More specifically, changes are made for `language`, `country`, `script` display names in `Locale` class, and `Currency` display names. Localized names used for `TimeZone`s and `Currency` symbols (such as `$`) are not modified so that `format`/`parse` should work as with JDK8.
