JEP 245: Validate JVM Command-Line Flag Arguments

Hi all,

This would be of great benefit to the tools space, we just spent the last
couple of days digging into GC flag (invalid) values causing 'interesting'
things to happen.

Having info messages instead of a JVM crash will also reduce the number of
JVM crashes we see out there. WRT to performance tuning this will allow
people to rapidly change settings in test with more confidence.

Anyhow, thanks for proposing this JEP!
