Could you review the fix ?
I'd like to obtain a sponsor for this issue.
IBM964 charset and IBM29626C charset are required for default charset
on AIX zh_TW and ja_JP locale.
OpenJDK already has IBM964, but it could not be configured for default
IBM29626C is new one.
(IBM33722 extends IBM29626C class)
I knew IBM charsets would need to move to somewhere.
The discussion was started by "Adding new IBM extended charsets". 
But it's related default charset issue.
Please put them inside of OpenJDK.
Bhaktavatsal started the discussion .
Sherman said that 
the new model (open/make/data/charetmapping), instead of hard-coding
into the source code.
This fix only has small sized hard-coded mapping,
IBM964/IBM29626C/IBM33722 refer other charsets conversion table
which are using the new model.
And class file is smaller then before.
Still I used SimpleEUCEncoder class because it's stable.
I think we may re-write it by IBM charsets renewal.
