Please review this change to fix method supports_value_types() in
classFileParser.cpp and to ignore the ACC_Value and ACC_Flattenable
flags if they are specified in older class file versions. According to
the JVM Spec for JDK-10
All bits of the access_flags item not assigned in <table> are
reserved for future use. They should be set to zero in generated
class files and *should be ignored by JVM implementations*.
No new tests are needed because this is covered by existing JCK vm tests.
This webrev was tested with hotspot JTReg tests, many JDK JTReg tests,
and with vm JCK tests.
