8131664: Javadoc for PrintStream is now incorrect

Hi Brian,

Is there an existing CSR or are you waiting for the review to complete here?

Overall, I think it is OK.

The existing autoflush wording looks  like it could use some wordsmithing at some point (as I know we do this a little differently in some of the APIs )

- “A boolean”  not sure we need to state this as it is obvious from the declaration.
-  Some places in the JDK, we say  True if XXXX; false otherwise.  I am not sure how many APIs after the really early ones  start  with “if true…”

Anyways, something to consider for a future todo list I guess :-)
