Please review -XshowSettings a java launcher option.

Is the purpose here to report what command-line options were used or to
report what particular settings are in effect? If the former then you do
not need any defaults for the "not set" case. If the latter then you
should really defer this to the VM itself for the "VM options", because
as it stands:
- if -Xmx is not set then Runtime.maxMemory() is not equivalent, so you
are misleading the user (And why not report -Xms?)
- if -Xss is not set the resulting value is not an OS default but a VM
- ServerClassMachine() does not take into account -Xint possibility (and
will need updating for Tiered compilation)
I'd be tempted to just drop the "VM options" part of this, unless you
are going to make a call into the VM to obtain them.
