[OpenJDK 2D-Dev] [9] RFR 8170579: The "Banner page"

Hello Prasanta

I believe the 'Banner Page' setting on Print dialog maps to the JobSheets attribute category. 
If this is right, the logic to check support for JobSheets attribute category is correct.

Few corner cases that I observed with BannerTest:
. The test-case does not bail-out when run without any printer installed on Ubuntu.
. Secondly, how do we handle multiple printers installed on the machine
         . The capabilities will vary across printers -> a printer may not support printing BannerPage
         . I believe, the test case should bail-out safely if the particular printer doesn't support BannerPage 

. The logic in other test-case within webrev- TestCheckSystemDefaultBannerOption.java, seems to handle both these conditions

Thanks & Have a good day

Prahalad N.
