Please review this small clean up of "XX" options in JDK 9 Hotspot. 
Also, I need a sponsor for this fix, who can push it.

JDK 9 HotSpot contains another 4 "XX" options which can be deprecated or 
removed. Here a list of these options: StarvationMonitorInterval, 
PreInflateSpin, VerifyGenericSignatures and CountInterpCalls.

In this fix StarvationMonitorInterval and PreInflateSpin product options 
are deprecated, i.e. added to the obsolete_jvm_flags table in  
src/share/vm/runtime/arguments.cpp. VerifyGenericSignatures and 
CountInterpCalls are removed, because VerifyGenericSignatures is a 
develop option and CountInterpCalls is not a valid product option(not 
defined in globals.hpp or similar).
