Please review the fix for jdk10.

Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8183518
Webrev can be found at: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~serb/8183518/webrev.00

In jdk9 the list of input events, which have an extended equivalent, 
were marked as deprecated. But there is some API which works with the 
old version of events only. In the fix the new method is added:
This method works in the same way as old getMenuShortcutKeyMask() but 
returns the new extended mask.

In the fix I have replaced most usages of the old method, except the 
places where it is used with ActionEvent, which has its own masks(the 
same as old input event), and currently has no extended modifiers(see [1]).

CSR will be filed after the technical review.
