Please review this very simple change:


The dependency of

     FileInstaller -> Utils -> JDKToolLauncher -> Platform

has caused many intermittent ClassNotFoundException in the hotspot 
nightly runs.
While this fix does not address the root cause (proper dependencies are not
specified in the test cases -- which we are planning to fix), we will 
see much fewer occurrences of this annoying failure scenario.

Thanks a lot to Igor for suggesting the simple fix!
