On Windows, we have been linking libjvm.so with -base:0x8000000 since
forever. This may have been a good idea on earlier versions of windows,
but with VS2017 it generates a warning and with ASLR, the address a
given binary is loaded at will vary between runs anyway, so there is
little point setting this linker option anymore (since Windows Vista).
So I propose we just remove it.
