(please ignore the two hotspot test changes)
This changes prepares for switching to release 11 and classfile version
54 so that I can put classfile version checks where needed, and compile
tests the right way, where needed.
Initially the default remains release 10 and v53, but --release 11 can
be used to explicitly use v54.
I think I have found everything that needs updating to allow use of
release 11 and v54 classfiles.
Testing so far is minimal: javac Foo.java -> v53
javac --release 11 Foo.java -> v54
langtools/tools/javac testing also conducted.
