Request for review: 7069991: Setup make/jprt.properties files for jdk8

FYI... This locks down the repository to only use jdk8, regardless of what the jprt submit -release NNN option says.
If this change only went into jdk8 I think it would be fine, but don't these same hotspot sources get
integrated into jdk7? Will someone change this to jdk7 when that happens?
Hotspot like Sybil (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sybil_%28book%29) has many personalities, and that
explains why this file is so crazy. %-)
I think the idea was that when submitting a hotspot job, you would always use 'jprt submit -release jdkN ...'
to tell JPRT and this properties file what the build was for.
JPRT does have a default release of jdk7, which I could change to jdk8, but the jdk7 repositories
currently rely on that being the default, an unfortunate situation. :^(
This release name is JPRT's only way of knowing what build/test dependencies are required for the build.
