<i18n dev> RFR: 8263090: Avoid reading volatile fields twice in Locale.getDefault(Category)

This patch refactors Locale.getDefault(Category) so that the volatile field holding the Locale is typically only read once. This has a small performance advantage, and might be more robust if initialization is racy.

 - Add microbenchmark
 - Reduce volatile reads in Locale.getDefault(Category)
