7025631: Remove the modules build support from jdk 7
JDK modularity is targetted for JDK 8 . The modules build is
supported in the jigsaw repository  and updated to work with the
module system. The modules build support added in JDK 7 repository
should be removed.
The change touches many files but it's mainly 1-line removal (removing
the MODULE variable). It also removes the class analyzer tool. Calls
to the install-module-* function can simply be removed since it copies
the file to the modules temporary directory that is used only for the
modules build. Calls to the install-non-module-file function is
replaced with install-file since the install-non-module-file function is
equivalent to the install-file function exception that it does not copy
the file to the modules temporary directory.
I verified this change by building the JDK with SKIP_BOOT_CYCLE=false
and also run the default set of jprt tests on all platforms. I also
compare the files in j2sdk-image with those in a promoted JDK 7 build
(minus the files created from the deploy workspace).
