My points:
1. OpenJDK should not do the re-sort internally. The preference decision
should be made before the call to setEnabledCiphersuite().

I think Simone agreed with this point.

2. A handy function to resort the cipher suite is useful. But it is out
of the scope of ALPN, or even out of the scope of OpenJDK. Application
can do whatever resorting, H2BLACKLISTCOMPARATOR does not belong to OpenJDK.
