This review has been sent to two aliases so please reply to both.

I'm obsoleting the '-XX:+InlineNotify' option and moving its functionality
to the experimental '-XX:SyncKnobs' option. This is a leftover cleanup from
the "Contended Locking fast notify bucket".

Since this is a diagnostic option, a CSR is not required:

See the bug for the results of test invocations of the '-XX:+InlineNotify'
option and the new '-XX:SyncKnobs' suboption.

Thanks, in advance, for any feedback.
