RFR 8158023: SocketExceptions contain too little information sometimes

thanks for this very good point. I thought that JNU_ThrowByNameWithLastError just tries to throw the exception manually and if that fails it calls JNU_ThrowByName which basically does the same. But I missed the point that it does the conversion and tries JNU_ThrowByName only as fallback. So I'll revert/correct that. But now I think there are other places in the JDK which potentially miss a conversion of strerror result when they go through JNU_ThrowIOException for instance. I'll check that.
Please note that the current thread of discussion of my change is this one:
There is an updated webrev but it obviously still contains this mistake.
