When working on JDK-8024545 I added code that prefixes developer and notproduct flags with CONST_. I think I did this to be able to access the address of these variables for the flag table. But this is not necessary because these flag cannot be written anyway. 

I am proposing to remove the CONST_ prefix and define the variables as const.
