>> This change implements a new service provider interface for host name and address resolution, so that java.net.InetAddress API can make use of resolvers other than the platform's built-in resolver.
>> The following API classes are added to `java.net.spi` package to facilitate this:
>> - `InetAddressResolverProvider` -  abstract class defining a service, and is, essentially, a factory for `InetAddressResolver` resolvers.
>> - `InetAddressResolverProvider.Configuration ` - an interface describing the platform's built-in configuration for resolution operations that could be used to bootstrap a resolver construction, or to implement partial delegation of lookup operations.
>> - `InetAddressResolver` - an interface that defines methods for the fundamental forward and reverse lookup operations.
>> - `InetAddressResolver.LookupPolicy` - a class whose instances describe the characteristics of one forward lookup operation.  
>> More details in [JEP-418](https://openjdk.java.net/jeps/418).
>> Testing: new and existing `tier1:tier3` tests
> Aleksei Efimov has updated the pull request incrementally with one additional commit since the last revision:
>   Change InetAddressResolver method names
