RFR: 8210373: Deadlock in libj2gss.so when loading "j2gss" and "net" libraries in parallel. [v2]

> `InetAddress` is loading native library `net` and at the same time `SunNativeProvider` is loading `j2gss`, and in the `OnLoad` function inside `j2gss` it is calling `FindClass(env, "java/net/InetAddress")` and thus a deadlock.
> We can access `InetAddress` in `SunNativeProvider.<clinit>` before loading the jgss library. i.e. use `Class.forName` to ensure `InetAddress` is initialized. Thanks to @dholmes-ora for providing this workaround.
> No new regression test, hard to reproduce.
