Valhalla project repository status: Branched off "LW1" in preparation for "LW2"

Added the tag "lworld_stable" to the "lworld" branch, describes last 
known working build. It will be moved every time we merge from mainline 
JDK and have a green from continuous integration.

This is to allow the repository to be temporarily "broken" in terms of 
testing, when pivoting from LW1 to LW2 semantics. There are a number of 
changes from multiple folks coming soon, and it's just easier to relax 
CI rules for this short period.

Anyone wanting to play with:
* LW1, should use "lw1" branch.
* latest changes from "lworld" that actual *work*, update to "lworld_stable"
