Replace archaic/non-inclusive words in JavaFX with more neutral terms. See [JDK-8253315](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8253315) for background information.

The following changes are made:

1. Rename whitelist/blacklist to allowlist/rejectlist
2. Rename `MasterTimer` to `PrimaryTimer` in animation and toolkit implementation
3. Rename local variable master in a couple places
4. Remove master from comments in a few other places

This PR doesn't remove uses of the word master where there is no connotation of slavery.

Note that it is out of scope of this PR to address similar issues in 3rd-party code, such as WebKit or GStreamer. We will pick up any relevant changes after they are available in the upstream sources.
