As part of JDK-8141491[1] the native methods in java.nio.Bits were 
removed, and the functionality is instead provided by the VM through 
j.i.m.Unsafe. The Bits wrapper methods are therefore redundant and can 
be removed.

I've run the java/nio jtreg tests and it all passes (modulo a couple of 
unrelated failures).
