Now that javac generates the reference projection class as a sealed type, this patch reimplements
`Class::valueType` and `Class::referenceType` in Java.  VM no longer has any knowledge of
the value projection type and reference projection type.

This patch includes a temporary workaround to disable the preview feature check for sealed types
because inline types are not (yet) a preview feature in valhalla repo.  This workaround should be
removed when it's time to make inline class a preview feature.


Commit messages:
 - supports_sealed_types checks only the major version
 - remove unused import
 - disable preview feature check for sealed types
 - Merge branch 'lworld' of https://github.com/openjdk/valhalla into lworld
 - implement Class::referenceType and Class::valueType in Java
