The specification in `Formatter` explicitly refers to the outcome of `Double.toString(double)`. However, it currently uses another implementation for the floating-point to decimal conversion, which might end up in rare, slightly different outcomes than the ones described in the specification.

This fixes the discrepancy between specification and implementation in `Formatter`.

Class `jdk.internal.math.FormattedFPDecimal` replaces `jdk.internal.math.FormattedFloatingDecimal`, which is no longer needed.
