Could I please get a review for this 8u-only fix? Latest jdk8u-dev
forest contains new launchers for SA tools, clhsdb and hsdb. The latter
is a GUI app and when launched will block until the user closes the
GUI. This results in a timout in tools/launcher/VersionCheck.java which
launches all tools in JAVA_HOME/bin. In particular, hsdb -version would
block in the described way and causes the timeout.
The fix is to blacklist both new tools for the '-version' option. They
only support '-J-version'.
Testing: Failing VersionCheck.java prior the patch, passing after.
