Please review at your convenience.

Issue:	https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8129633
Patch:	http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~bpb/8129633/


From the GnomeFileTypeDetector used on Linux and Solaris remove the branch which probes using the GnomeVFS [1] abstraction layer which has been deprecated since 2008. The branch which probes using GIO [2] remains in place.

With this change the jdk_nio regression tests pass on the usual Linux and Solaris variants.
