Review request: 8004260: dynamic proxy class should have same class access as proxy interfaces

Dynamic proxy class is specified to be public, final, and not
abstract.  For a proxy class that implements a non-public interface,
it will be in the same package as the non-public interface
but the proxy class is accessible outside of the non-public
interface's runtime package. This change will make dynamic proxy
class to have the same Java language access as the proxy interfaces
so that creating a proxy instance to implement a non-public interface
will be guarded by the Java language access check.

This change also updates the spec to specify the permission checks
by Proxy.getProxyClass and Proxy.newProxyInstance methods and removes
the system properties which provide a workaround for 7u releases and
not needed in jdk8.
