Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8210782
Webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~prr/8210782/

This change upgrades JDK 13 from using harfbuzz v 1.8.1 to v 2.3.1 which 
is currently the latest release of harfbuzz

harfbuzz is the 3rd party (external) C++ library used by OpenJDK for 
OpenType text layout.

In this large upgrade
- Many files were renamed following the pattern of "hb-foo-private.cc"  
becoming "hb-foo.cc"
- Many new files were added
- A couple of files were deleted.

There are two additional changes on top of this
I needed to import a published but un-released fix to enable building 
with Oracle Studio 12.6 on Solaris
I needed to reapply a fix made in JDK as JDK-8218965 that mirrors 
upstream to support building with the latest AIX compilers
This doesn't show up as a "diff" in the JDK webrev which demonstrates 
that it is correctly re-applied as previously.

There are two JDK files changed :
- The makefile has been updated to disable several new warnings.
- To prevent harfbuzz from enabling warnings that were disabled - and 
avoid unknown pragma warnings we now define


See hb.hh for what harfbuzz is doing there, but without this -D option 
we cannot
disable warnings from the build since they are enabled in the code itself.

- A couple of harfbuzz APIs were deprecated so I needed to make code 
changes in hb-jdk-font.cc to use
the new API.

I have tested that this builds cleanly with all the current devkits (via 
the build servers) and that it also builds
with the in progress work to provide a gcc 8.2 devkit for Linux
I have also run all the related automated tests and performed some 
manual testing too.
