Please approve this JDK 8u backport of launchers for SA tools, clhsdb
and hsdb. The 8u patch has been reviewed by Kevin Walls and Andrew
Hughes[1]. It's different from the JDK 9 patch because JDK 9+ have a
single launcher for SA tools whereas JDK 8 has many different launchers
for SA tools. This patch follows the JDK 8 model.

Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8059038
Enhancement approval request: http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/jdk8u-dev/2018-December/008257.html

Testing: New basic jtreg tests verifying that launchers exist and work.

I intend to create a bug for updating docs for those launchers once
this is approved and pushed.
