Ämne: JMC-6208 Fix font rendering on macOS

Hi all,

Font rendering on macOS Mojave regressed when Apple disabled subpixel font rendering by default, but the root cause on our side was that we never actually applied the anti-aliasing preferences in AwtCanvas, which was used by the JFR GUI. This is why the Console GUI looks fine, since it gets a graphics context in a different way and properly applies AA.
