Hi All,

Please review a document fix for jdk9
Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-6197099
webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~psadhukhan/6197099/webrev.00/

PrinterJob.getUserName() is supposed to return the current user name of 
the system. This method does not document any exception.
But when SecurityManager is installed, this method throws a security 
exception when PropertyPermission - user.name is not given in the policy 
But this is not documented anywhere and hence the user will not know 
until he gets the exception.

Documented the long-standing existing exception.

will raise a ccc after the technical review.
