Addendum: Joe reminded me that this change should have a CSR, so here it
is: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8210682 .  A review of that
too would be appreciated.

I’ve also revised the code for this change, and hence the webrev, to
show the double-dash VM-name options in the `java --help` output.
